"We are extremely concerned about this issue, especially in light of the fish kill which began Wednesday (Aug.6) near the mouth of the Pocomoke River," said USGS Chief Biologist Dennis Fenn. "Our scientists have the expertise to examine a broad range of fish health and disease distribution issues. Working with the State of Maryland, other federal agencies and area university researchers, we will try to determine the causes of the fish lesions and the extent of the problem throughout the Chesapeake Bay area."
