The fish were found in an area that has been impacted by the oil from the BP oil spill, the parish said.
The dead fish include pogies, redfish, drum, crabs, shrimp and freshwater eel, the parish said.
The area is rife with dead zones -- stretches where sudden oxygen depletion can cause widespread death. But those kills tend to be limited to a single species of fish, rather than the broad sort of die-off involved in this kill.
In the meantime, the parish has asked the two federal agencies, the EPA and NOAA, to investigate the fish kills. As for the dead whale, the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries is currently storing it in a freezer. They are now in discussions with NOAA and the Audubon Institute about who will conduct the necropsy to determine the cause of death.
primarily the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Coast Guard. Gulf Coast residents, and the rest of the world, are still being lied to and purposely mislead. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) aren't thoroughly testing seafood from areas of the spill for dangerous chemicals either. As with all the other Government cover ups, many will die due to their illicit actions and the vast majority of those involved in the cover up will receive total impunity for their criminal actions. The Center for Toxicology and Environmental Health (CTEH) is also being paid by BP to keep the spill covered up.

I had the same question. How does this get cleaned up?
Do they just leave it to nature?
It really is unbelievable to look at.
Plus, it’s not like it's human life, just dead fish!
