Massive fish kill has many wondering how Florida lagoon will survive
MELBOURNE, Fla. — The ides of March ushered in the worst known fish kill in Indian River Lagoon history, a watershed moment in a war to save a $3.7 billion annual economic engine.
Scientists say low levels of dissolved oxygen in the lagoon’s waters led to thousands of fish suffocating. More than 30 species in all died in the kill-off.
The same scientists believe the recent “brown tide” of algae blooming in the lagoon is responsible for the low oxygen levels.
The massive death spiral outraged the collective conscience of coastal residents, leaving many scratching their heads, pinching their noses and wondering what’s next: Dolphins? Manatees? Pelicans? A repeat of four years ago when all three died en masse?
Researchers say it likely will be years before the full impact of the fish kill is known.
