Chesapeake Bay, Maryland Fish Kills

Maryland fish kills have happened twice this month in the Pocomoke River and Bullbegger Creek which feed into Maryland's Chesapeake Bay. The first die off was 200,000 menhaden and other freshwater fish. Then this past week, another half million were found floating belly up and piled along the creek banks. This brings the total for July in just those two tributaries to over 700,000 dead fish ­ the Chesapeake's worst fish kill in a decade.
