It’s that time of year: after heavy rain, followed by last week’s still, hot weather, the conditions are ripe for fish kills.
Fishermen are reporting exactly that: dead croaker, spot and flounder littering the south side of the Pamlico, closer to the Sound (from Durham Creek to Indian Island).
North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality says it will investigate this week.
If you encounter a fish kill, please reach out and let us know!
