    Thousands of Dead Fish at Dog River Marina - Alabama


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Cari7 says she was surprised to see three men fishing on Wednesday when there were so many dead fish in the water. She said the smell was horrible. CNN producers told us that we can't tell if it was directly related to the oil spill with out conducting tests.
    - davidw, CNN iReport producer

    On Wednesday, June 2nd, I heard a report of thousands of dead fish washing up at the Dog River Marina. I took my camera to take a look myself. The smell was horrendous!!!

    When I first arrived I saw a boat docked that read CBI Cliff Berry Inc. Environmental Services. Three guys were boarding and I asked them if they knew anything about all the dead fish. They immediately walked away with their head down and said they could not tell me anything. They then drove the boat up and down the dock I was on until I was done shooting. I saw what looked like a dead animal floating in the river and several birds swooping down eating the dead fish. I cannot confirm if this has anything with the oil spill but being located only 25 miles north of Dauphin Island, it seems like a huge possibility.
