Kourou (river)

The Kourou is a 112 km long river in French Guiana. The town of Kourou is located at its estuary, which is generally used as a pleasure port. Like the river Amazon, it has brown, muddy waters due to sediments picked up from the forest. A great many different fish species live in the river, and are used in the local diet. Like many Guyanaise rivers, it is polluted by mercury, as a result of clandestine gold mining.
