    Officials worry urinating swimmers may be reason for 500 dead fish
    By Isolde Raftery, msnbc.com

    Peeing while swimming in a lake may not just be taboo  it could also be lethal, for the fish.

    At least that's what a group of anglers contend, blaming swimmers for the 500 dead fish that have turned up in a picturesque German lake near Hamburg, The Local reported.

    "Swimmers who urinate in the lake are introducing a lot of phosphate," Manfred Siedler, a spokesman for an anglers group, told Bild newspaper. "We're calculating half a liter of urine per swimmer per day."

    Skeptics questioned whether the outcry was an attempt by fishermen to oust bathers  with whom they have long feuded, according to The Local but are saying this could be possible.

    It seems unlikely, but there must be hundreds of people doing this to kill that many fish....

      Let natural selection take its course. Eventually we will be left with pee resistant fish.

      Providing the fishermen don't catch them all.

    Run off from fertilizers seems a bit more likely than pee?

    Sounds like a big joke - don't fish pee and poop in the water also? How much pee can there be even if all 500 swimmers did a group pee-in while in thousands of tons of water? Whatta a joke!

    Average urine production in adult humans is about 1 – 2 L per day, so that 1000 liters at the most in a dead lake that has no inlet and an outlet an average sized lake - I wouldn't know but ... Lake Ontario has a volume 1,638,095,457,398,147 liters

    Please name the lake so I can figure out the size. Thanks
