It was a special delivery for the Craven County Health Department Tuesday, courtesy of the Lower Neuse River Keeper.
Larry Baldwin, members of the Neuse River Foundation and residents of New Bern each had a bag of dead Menhaden from the river.
Baldwin says he's frustrated over what he calls a lack of action, after millions of fish have died in what continues to be an active fish kill.
County Health Director Scott Harrelson says the fish kill is more of a Division of Water Quality issue.
He says the local Health Department won't get involved unless it has an impact on public health.
He says what Baldwin did was an underhanded publicity stunt at the expense of the Health Department.
