No cause yet for south shore aquaculture fish kill

Fisheries Minister Keith Colwell says officials haven’t found any scientific reason for a fish kill at an aquaculture site in Shelburne Harbour.

Officials say the fish farm experienced a higher than expected mortality rate after it was damaged in a storm last month…but testing determined none died of disease. The exact number of dead fish is still being determined by Cooke Aquaculture as it finishes harvesting pens in the area.
