Sudden death of fish in Lake Batur

Since last Sunday, tons of fish of different species and sizes were mysteriously found dead in Lake Batur in Kintamani.

Laboratory tests will be done to get to the bottom of the incident and a similar incident occurred three years ago in Lake Batur, the number of dead fish was not as important. A small earthquake was recorded in the area Monday morning, and now the color of the lake water has changed into a whitish hue. If volcanic eruptions in the bottom of the lake cause water discolouration, then a lack of oxygen for fish and other animals or plants in the lake is almost certainly the cause of death. Lack of oxygen is a result of increased sulphur dioxide (SO2) and other types of chemicals.
