PASS CHRISTIAN, MS (WLOX) - Thousands of dead fish made quite a smelly mess at the Pass Christian Harbor.
WLOX News received complaints from residents who were disgusted by the fish kill. Some of the dead fish may have washed away, but we found many still floating along the southwest corner of the new harbor.
The vast majority of the fish are pogies or menhaden; small oily fish which are commercially harvested for a number of products. No word yet on what caused the fish kill, or if the pogies came from a broken net on a commercial boat.
