According to a report by CBS on the 11th. A large number of dead fish have washed ashore on the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico in Texas recently. And clean-up work has begun. The local government urged people to avoid swimming in the sea. Because of the high bacterial content in the water due to the large number of dead fishes and the sharp fins of the fish, which are potentially dangerous to swimmers.
Local authorities said no chemicals have been find to affect fish so far. Water samples from the area showed extremely low oxygen levels, which were responsible for the massive fish kills. The lack of oxygen may be due to factors such as the recent rise in temperature and more cloudy days.
