100,000s: UNBELIEVABLE FISHKILL in Lousiana — ALL TYPES, EVEN MAMMALS
Dead whale and thousands of dead fish found near Venice shipping canal, WWL-TV New Orleans, September 13, 2010 at 10:41 p.m. EDT:
Thousands of fish and a dead whale on Monday were found…
Plaquemines Parish President Billy Nungesser… said there is no testing going on to determine if it’s from the oil spill, although the northern Gulf of Mexico has suffered from a persistent dead zone of low oxygen, blamed on nutrient rich runoff from the Mississippi River.
Nungesser said this is different because usually the kills happen to only one or two species of fish.
