But officials say there’s little they can do. Environmental Protection Department spokesman Larry Ragonese tells the Asbury Park Press officials would kill the fish if they tried to remove them or if they tried to divert them to the colder waters of Barnegat Bay. Ragonese says they’ll continue to die if the stay in the discharge canal. Daily Record
