Caption

Dead fish in Bayou Robinson, that are part of the third reported fish kill in Plaquimines Parish in one week. The predominant species found floating on the surface were Menhaden, also called Pogie, mixed with crab and catfish. Fish kills in Louisiana along the Gulf Coast are a common occurrence at the end of the summer, however their frequency and scale the summer of the oil disaster are unprecedented. Until testing is done, it is not possible to rule out oil or dispersant factoring into the cause of low oxygen levels in the water that suffocates the fish, and results in the kills.
