The recent mass fish deaths in the Oder river that runs through Poland and Germany were caused by the proliferation of brackish water algae, which in turn was triggered by a sudden increase in the river's salinity levels, according to a report. Fishermen first discovered dead fish in the river near the Polish town of Olawa at the end of July, reports Xinhua news agency.
