I have just had this sent to me.   Not sure if recent or something from the past.

"Bad news from Hickling Broad.

Norfolk LO John Currie has been on Hickling Broad this afternoon and seen hundreds of dead fish including Roach, Bream, Eels, Perch & Pike. The cause will not be confirmed for a few days but John is 99% certain it is a Prymnesium parva outbreak.

JC has been with the EA team today and they have netted & moved approx twenty thousand fish. A second sweep of the nets was being carried out as we spoke and an equal amount of fish were due to be moved. Thanks to the EA team for working around the clock once again.

\there have been reports of dredging work taking place on Catfield Dyke but this is unconfirmed at the moment. Dan Hoare of the Broads Authority has stated the BA has not dredged in this area."

Hopefully its a old post, I thought Prymnesium parva was algae which I would think would only thrive in the warmer months.

Disasterous, even if it's not Prymnesium (I hope to God it's not) a fish kill of that size is a truely shocking occurance.

This appears to be happening now, as John Currie has just written
"Anything that dissturbs the chemistry of the water column can
cause a bloom,obviously dredging and weed cutting as Michael
said.However to be fair the 2012 bloom coincided with a low water
period,exactly what Hickling is seeing now,.Water level is at least a
foot down."


So the outbreak, if confirmed, seems likely to be due to the low water
levels.

I think saying it probably to do with low water is going a bit far Pally, it is possibly to do with low water but it could just as well be down to the dredging and Island building or even a combination oof the two. What is more important is that they bring it under control quickly and leave the inquest until all the facts are known.

Water levels are very low at the moment, Stalham is off normal Environment Agency range http://apps.environment-agency.gov.uk/river-and-sea-levels/120738.aspx?stationId=6216
and Hickling not much better
http://apps.environment-agency.gov.uk/river-and-sea-levels/120738.aspx?stationId=6210

If Hickling was adequately dredged it would contain more water, I assume this would possibly avoid this situation.

When a lake gets very shallow like Hickling will be at present due to the low water levels wind alone is enough to stir up the algae and bacterium lying on te bottom.
If you look at the Salton Sea or Lake which is the largest in Southern California it is the wind that kills hundreds of thousand of fish on a now yearly basis. In the Sixties the Salton Sea was a booming holiday destination with yacht clubs, hotels marinas and attractions. Today it is ad dead as the Aral Sea in Russia. Many reasons for this enviromental disaster but it has been proven that in shallows wind will caue fish kill.
