After an inquiry from WESH 2 News, Florida Fish and Wildlife said several reports have come in from residents about dead fish.
FWC issued a statement on the recent fish kill. In part, it says, “This event is not associated with the blue-green algae located in the southern part of the lagoon earlier this summer.”
Instead, FWC believes recent kills have been caused by naturally occurring low dissolved oxygen.
In a different statement, FWC said it’s been testing waters weekly at eight different sites. The recent kills could be caused by something else.
Earlier this month, county commissioners decided to place a property and sales tax hike plan on the November ballot.
The plan attempts to raise $300 million over 10 years to clean up the lagoon.
