EMA probes La Brea fish kill

Tuesday, September 26, 2017

The Environmental Management Authority (EMA) is investigating another incident of dead fish floating along the La Brea shorelines. In a release yesterday, the EMA said after being informed by the La Brea Fisherfolk Association of various species of dead fish near the coastline on Sunday it sent a crew to investigate.

“The site visit by EMA confirmed the report of dead fish, with approximately 45 to 50 fish of varying species observed,” the EMA said. The EMA said it took samples of the fish for testing but said the incident appeared to have been confined to the La Brea coastal area. It added that no abnormal conditions, substance or indicators at the time of the site visit suggest suggested the likely cause of the fish deaths.

The EMA also asked the public to report any additional observations of a similar nature at 680-9588 or email the authority at [email protected]
