English term or phrase: barren
"The contamination of this area from XX is widespread. YY say the stream near the community, once one of the richest fish streams on ZZ, has been barren in the 30 years since XX began poisoning it."

If we were talking about barren land (flora), we could say infertil. What's the Spanish word in this "fishless" case (fauna)??

Thanks in advance.
