The governor was presumably referring to the Kozelsk chemical landfill, which stands on the river flowing into Avacha Bay. A possible leak from the landfill has been considered among the potential reasons for the death of 95 percent of sea life in the area. It’s believed that it’ll take the fauna up to 15 years to fully recover.

Russia’s Investigative committee has launched a criminal probe into the incident.
