KTLA.com

Millions of dead fish have washed up in King Harbor near Redondo Beach, and officials are now trying to figure out why.

The dead fish, including anchovies, sardines and mackerel, are apparently floating up to the surface from the ocean floor.

KTLA’s Sky5 captured images of the fish completely coating the water’s surface in Basins 1 and 2 of the north side of King Harbor.

Fish and game officials have not released a statement about what might have killed the fish. Officials were at the harbor investigating.

There are reports that a red tide may have driven large numbers of the fish into the harbor, where they were killed by a lack of oxygen.
