3 MILLION pounds of dead fish washed up on beaches in Lee County, Florida, USA

Fish Kill Alert

A one-two punch of red tide and algae-filled lake water releases have had a devastating effect on sea life in Southwest Florida.

The latest numbers from Lee County officials on Thursday reveal that well over 3 million pounds of fish have been removed from local coastlines.

The county reports that contractors removing fish from Lee County beaches have amassed more than 1,400 tons of fish, and that crews in Sanibel have collected an additional 309 tons.

Among the dead fish found include one dead Whale Shark on Sanibel, and numerous large goliath grouper and tarpon.
