Thousands of smelts were found dead during low tide in the Togiak slough. Is there an environmental cause?
Hundreds of northern lampfish were observed on Nahku Bay beach. The last die-off occurred in March 2011.
A resident of the community was near the gravel pit when he came across a number of dead fish.
The smelt, caught through the ice in late January, may have caused a person who ate some to get sick. Local, tribal and state officials worked together to collect and analyze the fish.
