Officials in Spain have banned the use of fertilizers within 1.5km of Mar Menor, one of Europe’s largest saltwater lagoons in the south-eastern region of Murcia, after five tons of dead fish washed up on its shores.
In August, loads of small fish and shrimp began to wash up along the beaches of the Mar Menor lagoon. Locals began complaining that the waters of the lagoon, once filled with tourists, were gloomy, green, and emitting a foul smell. In response to this, regional officials closed eight beaches.
