Fish Kill on the Quinnipiac River, CT
August 10, 2012
New Haven Register: Dozens of dead fish littered [New Haven’s] Quinnipiac River banks near Front Street [on Wednesday, August 8], coating the area in a thick, fishy scent, providing a feast for sea gulls and leaving some fishermen scratching their heads.
The fish, reportedly menhaden, could be seen among the rocks and seaweed of the river’s shore, with sunlight glinting off their silver scales. Birds were flocking to the spot, pecking at the fish and waiting for others to die.
