OCEAN ISLE BEACH, N.C. (WECT) - The Division of Marine Fisheries (DMF) received calls, Thursday, about dozens of dead fish washing up on Ocean Isle Beach.

According to the DMF public information officer Patricia Smith, a DMF officer responded to the site and took samples to bring back for biologists to test.

They determined the dead fish appeared to be menhaden and, although there were many, they stopped short of calling it a ‘fish kill’.

Currently, there is no information regarding a possible cause.
