Dead Fish Everywhere on Edmonton Alberta Beach
Thousands of dead fish wash up on Alberta beach
EDMONTON – Beach-front property owners on Pigeon Lake were shocked Sunday morning to see “thousands” of dead fish wash up on the sand along Ma-Me-O Beach.
Seagulls were feasting on the piles of dead walleye along the beach as community members led a self-started clean-up operation on the lake 109 kilometres southwest of Edmonton.
