There have been many fish corpses seen floating in a pond at Kanlikoy, northwest of Lefkosa.
These were reported by bird watchers belonging to the Association of Turkish Cypriot Biologists. The relevant authorities have been notified and water samples have been taken for analysis. The dead fish will be collected and disposed of.
The cause of these deaths is as yet unknown but suspicions are that they are due to pollution and possibly chemical poisoning.
