Iowa DNR warns about fish kills
August 15, 2007

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources has issued a warning to farmers that they need to check their buildings and storage structures for manure spills. Their concern is that fish kills ordinarily spike in late summer, when high temperatures are already placing fish under stress. Manure spills release high levels of ammonia into the water, which destroys the ability fish have to respirate.
