“Fish Kill” (Texas, USA)

Source: IE


Thousands of dead fish washed up on the beaches of southeast Texas due to a phenomenon called “fish kill,” which occurs when low levels of dissolved oxygen in the water cause suffocation of the fish.

Warmer oceans, potentially influenced by climate change, can lead to decreased dissolved oxygen levels, making such incidents more prevalent.


Texas is a state in the South Central region of the United States. It is the second-largest U.S. state by both area and population.
