Harrison County Beach Authority Director Chuck Loftis said they have one crew coming from Pass Christian heading east. Another crew started at Kuhn Street in Biloxi. That crew is working its way west.
Loftis said both crews will meet in Gulfport. He said they may finish up by late afternoon.
"We are taking care of it with a tracker and beach cleaners behind them," Loftis said. "We are waiting for the tide to go down so that the fish will stay on the shore line. So we can pick them."
Loftis said the crews have experience in picking up the dead fish. Once all the fish are picked up they will be hauled to an area landfill.
"Most of the time when we have a jubilee it's about a mile at the longest, but this one is close to 15 miles. This one is sporadic," Loftis added. "We'll travel a mile and find fish and then another mile and find nothing."
Much of the dead fish in Harrison County were discovered between Long Beach Harbor and the Biloxi Small Craft Harbor. Dead fish have also popped up in Hancock County.
