We were out having a good ski beach party today and on our way in I noticed dead fish one after another floating by about every 1/8 of a mile.Catfish,Carp,and even two keeper size Striper.This was all in the Port of Stockton area.Is the Delta so polluted out this way fish are just dying?

Not really, this time of year there isnt any runoff and the die off of fish usually occurs due to the lack of oxygen in the water. Im sure the water isnt as clean as we would like it but the main reason is lack of oxygen content. In fact you can see the new oxygenators the city put in by the port
