Smith Island is just west of Crisfield, MD about 90miles south of the Wye River in the lower Chesapeake Bay. The Wye is a tributary of the Chesapeake.

The fish kill was intially thought to be a result of RED TIDE. Now the State is blaming  commerical fisherman.
I think it sounds like the work of the Omega Plant in VA. Just my opinion.
I'd be glad to talk about this more if your interested.

I saw a report on the news the other night about Omega and a fish kill, didn't know if they were related?  Didn't catch all the details though.

Gang,

          I was reading the recent reports of fish kill in the Chesapeake area. I remembered reading something similar to that incident right here in Louisiana in Lake Pontchartrain. On bayou Lacombe on both sides of the bayou leading into Lake Pontchartrain were dead fish all over the water. They still don't know what caused it at least that is what they say.

   http://www.wdsu.com/news/4839827/detail.html

          So this information brought out my curiosity about other large fish kills in the U.S. this month. I did a little research and find out that dead fish kills was happening all over the U.S. Here is just a few.

             Matagorda, Texas     Aug. 7, 2005

            Minnesota                 Aug. 10, 2005

   http://www.cantondailyledger.com/articles/2005/08/10/news/news3.txt

            What is causing this increase in fish kill in the month of August. They are blaming it on the lack of oxygen in the water, some say it is red tide or dead water, and others say it's and increase in algae growth. No one really seems to have a pinpoint answer but I hope a answer is found soon. Shocked

kajun  Huh

Kajun,

Thanks for the information. I hadn't heard of any other large fish kills this year.
