Actions of Russian invaders at the Zaporizhzhia NPP provoked mass fish mortality in the plant’s cooling pond
The actions of the Russian invaders at the Zaporizhzhia NPP provoked mass fish mortality in the plant’s cooling pond, the National Nuclear Generating Company Energoatom reports.
According to the statement, because of the shutdown of the plant’s power units, warm water does not enter the ZNPP cooling pond. It caused the water temperature to drop to almost 13 degrees Celsius.
“This has led to mass fish mortality in the pond. It is currently stocked with two species of fish — warm water tilapia and Asian catfish — introduced about 25 years ago to ensure environmental cleanliness. The fish perform a sanitary function,” Energoatom said.
