Fish kill takes place in water off Glen Cove

News 12 Long Island has learned of another fish kill taking place, this time in Glen Cove. 
A viewer sent News 12 pictures of dead and dying fishing in Glen Cove Creek.
As News 12 has reported, big fish kills took place in May in Manhasset Bay, Flanders Bay and the Peconic River. 
Experts blamed the problem on human waste and fertilizer, which causes oxygen levels to drop, which suffocates the fish.

 

Glen Cove officials say there's been an overpopulation of bunker fish depleting the oxygen.
