Dead herring in the Bay

Tens of thousands of dead herring keep washing ashore across the Bay of Fundy along the shores of St. Mary’s Bay in Nova Scotia…and now they’re turning up elsewhere.

The first sightings were two weeks ago on beaches on St. Marys Bay. Now dead fish are turning up in the Annapolis Basin.

Biology professor Shawn Craik says the fish could be dying of a virus, pollution, parasites or a poisonous algae bloom…they’re waiting on lab tests.
