WARSAW, Aug 14 (Reuters) – Poison cannot be ruled out as the cause of a mass fish die-off in the Oder River, but tests so far have not proved that toxic substances were to blame, Polish Environment Minister Anna Moskwa said on Sunday.

Tons of dead fish have been found since late July in the Oder River, which runs through Germany and Poland. Both countries have said they believe a toxic substance is to blame, but have yet to identify what it is.

“As of today, none of these (water) tests have confirmed the presence of toxic substances,” Moskwa said after meeting her German counterpart and other German and Polish officials.

“At the same time, we are doing tests on fish. We have tested the fish for mercury and heavy metals. Neither mercury nor heavy metals were found in the collected samples”, she added.

Moskwa said the samples are now being tested for the presence of pesticides and about 300 more substances will be checked in the coming hours.

“We still do not rule out a variant of toxic substances… so we are interested in the quick identification of the perpetrator… We are checking entities that conduct business and industrial activity along the river,” added Moskwa.

The German and Polish governments have said the mass die-off is a major environmental disaster and the waterway could take years to return to normal.
