It is the second major fish kill event in the region in the past five weeks.

The discovery follows a number of fish kill events around the country in recent months, where millions of fish have died.

The NSW Department of Primary Industries (DPI) said it had investigated the matter at Lake Meringo, and the main species affected included black bream, gudgeons, mullet, eels and luderick.

The DPI said the suspected cause related to the very low water levels at Lake Meringo and resulting poor water quality.

"At these low levels, coastal lakes are very susceptible to high water temperatures, algal growth, and low dissolved oxygen," a DPI spokeswoman said.

"It's quite staggering and really worrying to see how much life is in there and how much of that is now dead," she said.

Ms Tedder said it had brought the issue of climate change into her own backyard.

"We're down in that area several times a week and it's a beautiful, beautiful lagoon — it's the sort of reason why you move to an environment like this," she said.

Investigations by the DPI and the local council confirmed poor water quality was the cause.

"Dissolved oxygen levels are poor throughout the lake … this poor water quality is suspected to be the result of run-off from recent heavy rain in the catchment of Wallagoot Lake," the DPI said.

Doug Reckord, principal of the Bournda Environmental Education Centre said, in a world affected by climate change, our waterways were going to be more vulnerable to low oxygen events in the future.

"Unfortunately, that's just going to be a part of the world that we live in — that they will happen more frequently," he said.

Mr Reckord said people were particularly moved by the images of dead fish as it was an indication of the health of the environment, adding that it was an emotional issue.

"When you've got lots of dead fish people understand that there's something not right, and that it's telling them something about the health of the ecosystem," he said.
