The official line is that the Murray-Darling River fish kill was due to drought. That river system should not dry out, even in the most extreme circumstances.
The death of 100,000 fish in the Murray-Darling Basin was blamed on low water levels, but the question of who turned off the tap needs to be asked.
As a farmer crushed by this drought, the sudden collective push is equal parts welcome, but vexing. We need to ensure we’re protected, not the subject of clickbait activism.
