Hundreds of dead fish have reportedly washed up on the shores of Thurmond Lake in Georgia, and the cause remains a mystery. Thursday morning, state and national officials officially launched an investigation to find out what caused the mass fish-kill. According to J. Strom Thurmond Lake visitors discovered a number of dead Blueback Herring fish along the shore and posted a status alerting others on social media.

“Do report it to some kind of an authority because fish don’t usually die in mass numbers,” Savannah Riverkeeper Tonya Bonitatibus told WJBF NewsChannel 6. This prompted the Savannah Riverkeeper and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to begin testing oxygen levels and checking other areas of Thurmond Lake for more dead fish.
