Mark Williams with the Department of Health and Environmental Control assessed the fish. He says he found them in a line from about 3rd Ave. East to 5th Ave. West. Williams says the fish are Menhaden fish, a commons small bait fish.
Williams says this appears to be a temperature-related fish kill. Charleston County Park officials told Williams that the water temperature was about 48-51 degrees. Williams says the fish can die when the water gets too cold.
