Dead fish, stingrays wash ashore in Brevard County

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.
