Thousands, maybe Millions of dead fish wash up at Houston Yacht Club, Texas, USA

Fish Kill Alert

The hot weather is being looked at as a possible cause for the death of thousands, if not millions of dead fish washing up at the Houston Yacht Club.

Fish kills happen in southeast Texas. That’s a part of the circle of life, according to state officials.

In this case, the fish known as Menhaden, shad, or shiners found themselves with not enough oxygen.

One woman told ABC13 the first sign of trouble was the air conditioner on her boat stopped working.

“When I got out here, it was like snow all over,” Athena Barrett said.

Everywhere you look at the Houston Yacht Club, you see the same thing: dead fish.
