Sad Photo: Drought causes death of thousands of fish in the Amazon River

Dead Fish

Resident Manoel da Silva paddles his canoe through dead fish in the Parana de Manaquiri River, a tributary of the Amazon, near the city of Manaquiri November 22, 2009. After a rainy season that caused some of the worst flooding in recent history the seasonal drought that followed is proving to be especially bad as well.
