It's another case of dead fish in Lake Wichita. Hundreds of thousands of dead fish were reported to Texas Parks and Wildlife officials Monday morning.
Fisheries Biologist Robert Mauk investigated the incident and took samples back to his lab. What he found was golden algae. The algae release a toxin into the water that make it difficult for the fish to breathe, eventually leading to suffocation.
Carp, catfish, crappie and other species are dead, some still struggling to survive. Mauk refers to this as a "major" fish kill.
"This is probably the 4th golden algae related fish kill at this lake," he said.
