Venice to probe fish deaths

Venice, July 23 - Venetian prosecutors are investigating a rash of fish deaths in recent days in its lagoons. They want to clarify whether a lack of oxygen, possibly caused by pollution, has killed fish now being cleaned out of its canals. Scientists have suggested the fish are dying in parts of the lagoon where oxygen levels are particularly low, spawning large amounts of algae. Residents have complained for days about the phenomenon's implications, among them its stench.
