Haiti - Environment : Dozens of fish died mysteriously in the Lake Azuei
Dozens of dead fish were found in recent days on the shores of the "étang Saumâtre". This water surface, covering an area of 170 sq km, is also known as Lake Azuei and is located about thirty kilometers east of Port-au-Prince, to the southeast of Haiti in the "plaine du Cul de Sac" and adjacent to the border with the Dominican Republic.

Alerted to the situation by the people, the Haitian authorities were preparing Sunday to prohibit the consumption and sale of fish and other products from the lake in several riverside towns, said Michel Chancy, the Secretary of State of Haiti animal production.

Fish and water samples were sent to the national laboratory but also in Mexico, for analysis to determine the causes of this phenomenon. According to the testimony of residents, other animals have died after eating fish from Lake Azuei.
