Thousands of dead #fish found washed up off #Auckland coast, #NewZealand

Fish Kill Alert

Thousands of dead fish have been seen washing up on a Hauraki Gulf island.

Photos and video of what appear to be dead mackerel floating in the water and lining the shores of Kawau Island have been sent in to the Herald.

A reader told the Herald locals were cleaning up trailer loads of fish from the beaches.

A Department of Conservation spokesperson said he had spoken to two rangers about the dead fish.

“The word is it was a variety of fish and MPI are aware of it and investigating,” he said.
