THOUSANDS of Dead Fish In Ft. Pierce, Florida

     Thousands of dead fish were reported Thursday afternoon on the west bank of the Indian River Lagoon about a mile north of the Martin-St. Lucie county line near Indian River Drive and Mockingbird Lane. Tony DiChristofaro of Stuart, said he saw “thousands and thousands of dead fish coming ashore” about 2 p.m. Thursday as he was walking along the lagoon beach. DiChristofaro said the dead fish extended along the shoreline for about a mile. “They were still coming in,” he said, “but some of them looked like they’d been there for several hours.” Kevin Baxter, a spokesman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission lab in St. Petersburg Baxter said samples of the dead fish will be collected Friday.
