Authorities investigate large fish kill
A large fish kill reported on the south shore of the Neuse River between Flanners Beach and Hancock Creek this past weekend has Neuse Riverkeepers concerned.
George Matthis, executive director of Neuse Riverkeeper Foundation, said Tuesday morning he was unsure what caused the fish kill or how large it was.
It was still being investigated Tuesday morning, he said.
“People started seeing dead fish on the river late Saturday between Flanners Beach and Hancock Creek,” Matthis said.
