“The analysis was carried out by Rospotrebnadzor specialists – high-level experts. It was decided to send part of the analyzes taken in the region to specialists in Moscow, ”the minister noted. At the same time, he noted that the experts found a slight excess in iron content in water samples in Kamchatka, however, in this zone at this time, this situation is standard. “Frequent rains, storms, of course, something is happening. Therefore, the reason for the death of aquatic organisms remains a mystery to us, “added Kobylkin.
The official also said that this is not the first time that similar phenomena, such as the current mass death of marine animals, which caused a wide public outcry, have been recorded. “Such phenomena have already been registered, and not only in Russia, but also in neighboring Japan,” he said.
