Fish Kills In Iowa Great Lakes

Fish Kills In Iowa Great Lakes

Spirit Lake, IA (KICD)–A pair of natural fish kills were recently reported in the Iowa Great Lakes.

Iowa DNR Fisheries Biologist Mike Hawkins says a number of very small types of fish showed up along about a mile long stretch of shoreline on the east end of Big Spirit Lake.

Hawkins says a completely unrelated fish kill occurred on a broad portion of East Lake Okoboji.

Hawkins stresses that both of the fish kills were not from pollution and there should be no danger for humans.
