At Least 10 Tons of dead fish wash up on beaches in Brevard County, Florida, USA

Fish Kill Alert

At least 10 tons of dead fish have been removed from the beaches and hauled off to an area landfill.

Volunteers were continuing cleanup efforts Monday at Melbourne Beach.

They carried 5-gallon buckets, looking for spots that might have been missed during this past weekend’s most recent cleanup.

Residents said they hope conditions improve quickly, but Keep Brevard Beautiful said the cleanups might be a long-term effort.

“We were overwhelmed this past Friday — the smell, thousands of fish,” beachgoer Sally Dann said. “Then we saw (Keep) Brevard Beautiful in Spessard Holland (South Beach) Park.”
