Thousands of dead fish wash up on beaches in North Carolina, USA
Thousands of fish washed ashore Tuesday along a two mile stretch of beach near the Outer Banks community of Corolla.
Photos of the beach littered with fish were posted on Facebook, noting the NC Division of Marine Fisheries had been called to investigate.
“In some places, the fish are piled thick,” said a post on the Corolla Beach Music Facebook page.
The fish have been identified as Menhaden and Spanish Mackerel and they appeared along mile posts 13 and 17 in an area used for four-wheel drive vehicles, reported TV station WTKR. Samples were taken by Marine Fisheries, which noted there were no marks or sores on the fish, reported the WTKR.
