    The flooding in Lac Azuei was a matter of urgent concern before the quake since the new customs house flooded regularly and the road was impassable.

    There were plans to dig out the canals which helped the sea drain into the sea.. but nothing happened.

    I suspect that the fish are dying from an increase in salt.. but that is just my gut speaking..

    I think it's a reasonable request. Imagine if the government said or did nothing and people started dying from eating the fish.

    It sounds way to early to say what the cause is. Sometimes there can be bacterial blooms that removes too much oxygen from the water and there can be many other pathogens that would not affect humans eating the fish. It could also be pesticides or other toxins getting into the lake working up the food chain.
