dc.description.abstractThe number of fish kills reported in 1988 showed a very welcome reduction to 50 incidents after the 1987 record of 122. The principal source of trouble has continued to be inadequately planned agricultural practices. Run-off from silage was once more the most serious problem, accounting for 13 kills. Slurry or manure accounted for seven more. While weather conditions may have alleviated the problem, due credit for the improvement must be given to the farmers who responded to the campaign organised by the Government in conjunction with the farming organisations. Industrial sources were responsible for 11 incidents. They have been increasing since 1985 but still remain below the maximum recorded in 1984. Sewage, for the first time since 1980, was not implicated. The most serious events in 1988 were on the Inny caused by an industrial effluent and on the Dodder following a discharge of silt from a water treatment plant.en_GB
