Bay 101: Fish Kills



June 15, 2012

Decomposing algae blooms can suck oxygen out of the water, suffocating marine life and causing fish kills. In this follow-up to Bay 101: Algae Blooms, Charlie Poukish from the Maryland Department of the Environment documents a fish kill and explains how actions on land can affect life in the water.
