Firefighters have ferried water to a fish pond in the East Bohemian town of Přelouč to save carp and zander suffering due to a fall in the water level, iDnes.cz reported on Tuesday. Recent dry weather has had a dramatic impact on local ponds and administrators say they find dozens of dead fish every day, the news site said.
Fish farmers say filling ponds is the only way to keep oxygen-starved fish alive. As the traditional seasonal food, the carp should reach Czech dinner tables next Christmas.
