Dead Fish Along the Shores of Sullivan’s Island, SC


Today, I drove to the beach, ready for a relaxing day. I suppose it just wasn’t meant to be! Entering the Station 27 walkway, I turned left, only to discover a pile of dead fish along the shore! The closer I got, the more I discovered, including little fish, I suppose they were minnows? I do not confess to be a ‘fisher woman,’ just a woman ready to enjoy a nice day at the beach. Stopping, I grabbed my Blackberry, took a few photographs and posted them on Facebook.

Why are the fish dying? Could it be the extreme heat indexes we have experienced in Charleston for such a long time has decreased the oxygen? Or, could it be the water along the first lagoon is drastically polluted? Regardless, the dead fish need to be removed. At the moment, they were not smelling, but they will!

I have seen many children entering the water in this lagoon previously. I certainly hope they do not attempt to cross the waters into the next sandbar area without noticing the dead fish.

This discovery truly placed a damper on my enjoyment of the beach. Why are fish dying? Seagulls were standing along the shoreline, I suppose awaiting when they would have the freedom to eat the dead fish.

How I hope I do not have nightmares about the dead fish, and I hope all families will approach this area with much caution. Sullivan’s Island Town Hall — it is time to clean up and remove the dead fish! What an impression this makes for the Atlantic Ocean beaches!
