2009: A Bad Year for Fish, A Great One for Seagulls

Record #:
More than 13 million fish died in “fish kill events” in North Carolina in 2009 - the most since that data has been collected. The estimate is conservative and could actually be double the total. Graphs detailing the annual fish kill events from 1997 to 2009 and the reported annual fish kill mortality from 1997 to 2009 are presented. Most of the fish kill events occurred as a result of low oxygen in the water and pollution.
