Fishy project to save Indian lake

 Thousands of fish have been released into a picturesque lake in India's northern Nainital in an attempt to restore the areas lost grandeur.

Nainital is a hill resort 2,000 meters above the sea level in Kumaon hills. It's known as the "Switzerland of India" because of its picturesque lakes. 

But Naini lake has become severely polluted in recent years as result of the region's numerous tourists and the urban waste which has been dumped in the water. 

Many fish have died and this new project is attempting to redress the balance.
