Dead Fish Wash Up Along Neuse River


Hundreds of dead fish have washed up along the Neuse River in the Carolina Pines neighborhood in Craven County.

River Watch President Rick Dove saw the fish swimming in the river Tuesday night. When he woke up Wednesday morning they were dead along the beach.

While he says he has seen fish kills a lot worst in the past, he is afraid this might just be the beginning.

Dove says, "What the river is telling us here as you look at these dying fish, there is something wrong here and we need to get it fixed."

The majority of the fish are Menhaden. A small percentage of them have sores along their bodies.
