100,000 Dead Fish Found Along Arkansas River – What a Nightmare! (Video)


Though the location is 125 miles away
from the

thousands of birds that dropped dead
in Beebe, Arkansas
just one day before, this is an unparalled series of events. 
Keith Stephens, a spokesman for the Arkansas Game and Fish
Commission
provided the

estimate of 80,000 to 100,000 dead fish
.

Andrew Goodwin, the associate director of the University of Arkansas'
Aquaculture and Fisheries Center
, said he didn't believe the deaths were caused
by pollutants. "It's unlikely to be a toxin," Goodwin told

AOL News by phone
. At

CNN
, Keith Stephens, a spokesman for the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission said fish kills occur every year, but the size of the latest one is unusual, and suggested some sort of disease was to blame.
"The fish kill only affected one species of fish," he said. "If it was from a pollutant, it would have affected all of the fish, not just drum fish."
