Posted Thu Jun 26 2008: from Herald Online (South Africa):
Pollution fears as prawns die in thousands
THOUSANDS of pink prawns have washed up dead on the banks of the Swartkops estuary, apparently as a result of pollution from the Markman canal.... "The whole river was pink. We feel fairly certain there was a connection between this swarming, the die-off and what we saw and smelt coming out of the Markman canal last week."
