Ferry captain: fish from sunken boat washing up on Ship Island

GULFPORT, MS - Capt. Louis Skrmetta of Ship Island Excursions told WLOX he was been notified Sunday morning by the National Park Service there is a large amount of fish washing up on the island's beaches.

The fish are from a commercial boat that sank earlier this week after colliding with another vessel in Mississippi Sound.

Three fishermen died in the accident.
