Iraqi officials and fishermen are at a loss to explain how hundreds of tons of carp have suddenly died in fish farms in the Euphrates River, fueling anxieties regarding soaring water pollution. Local authorities used excavators to skim dead fish from the river surface near the town of Al-Hindiyah, 80 kilometers south of Baghdad, where residents and local farmers have long complained about substandard water management.Ayad Talibi, head of Iraq's Fish Producers' Syndicate, called it "annihilation" and a blow to the country's "strategic fish reserve".Iraqi officials could not say for certain what caused the fish to die out.
