Fish mortality reported in Panama Viejo, MiAmbiente investigates
MiAmbiente called on the population to contribute to the conservation of Panamanian biodiversity.
After reports of mortality of fish in Panama Viejo, marine and land authorities conducted inspections to locate evidence of wildlife affected, though no evidence was found mortality.
After this, personnel from the Directorate of Coasts and Seas explained that in one of the points the color of the water could be observed a little brown, which could be the product of sediment from the rains, erosion, among others. However, "it is not ruled out that it is related to the presence of certain vessels that unload excess cargo into the sea, affecting marine fauna."
"At the moment the reason for this impact on aquatic life cannot be reported," said the Ministry of the Environment ( MiAmbiente ), which works in coordination with the Aquatic Resources Authority (ARAP) and the National Aeronaval Service (SENAN), to ensure the protection of animals and their environment.
The entity called on the population to contribute to the conservation of Panamanian biodiversity.
