Something fishy is happening along Presque Isle Bay and the Lake Erie Shoreline.Thousands of dead gizzard shad are washing up on the shorelines as part of the annual 'fish kill'. The fish are unable to tolerate the cold water temperatures, and as a result, die under the ice. As the ice melts, the fish wash up along the shoreline
Visitors to Presque Isle should not be alarmed because this is a natural event, and is in no way caused by pollution.
