Tyne Salmon Deaths 2005

With the low water and high temperatures we are once again experiencing the sad and distressing sight of extensive deaths of Salmo Salar on Englands Premier Salmon Fishery, the Tyne .(Environment Agency claim)
Most of the deaths have occurred in the estuary, as previous death years, as expected, however this year an increasing number are dying up to 20 miles above the tide.
Symptoms are same ie red sores on the belly, internal bleeding and live fish throwing themselves out of the river prior to death!!
My question, through these pages, is to ask if any similar occurrances have been experienced elsewhere in the Salmo Salar domain, worldwide, during 2005, or is it just a Tyne problem.

Thanks

Mike
