ORMOND BEACH, Fla. — Officials are trying to find out what caused a number of dead fish to wash up along a portion of Ormond Beach.
Volusia County Beach Safety Capt. Tammy Marris says the fish were found Monday spread over section of a couple of miles.
Marris says they took pictures and sent them to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
Wildlife agency spokeswoman Kelly Richmond told the Daytona Beach News-Journal the fish appear to be spot croakers. She says the agency is investigating but noted there is a lot of trawling activity in the area, which is a method of fishing by pulling a net through the water. Sometimes smaller fish are a bycatch and get stressed and die.

  1. Scientific work, causes and solutions are fine, but simple common sense is far greater to tell us to open our eyes to the factual truth we have been told: The Bible! 99.99 percent of Americans know that Jesus fed the masses with fish, and he is the Life!

  2. Knock, knock, who is there to proclaim what was foretold is fact!?! Prophecy told us 1/3 of the seas and oceans would die in the end of days! What does it take for people to admit its the truth, and that Jesus Christ is the only truth, way, and life!
