A truck carrying 250,000 Australian dollars (£157,000) worth of salmon crashed in Tasmania, spilling 15 tons of fish into the street.
The crash in the capital of Hobart sparked a major clean-up operation and brought down power lines, cutting electricity to nearby suburbs.
Tasmania police told Australian Broadcasting Corporation that the driver crashed into a pylon and the truck tipped over.
The driver and a passenger suffered minor injuries.
The spoiled fish had to be dumped.
