Dozens of menhaden fish die in Gulfport

Dozens of dead fish were seen floating in the water today from Long Beach to Gulfport.
Melissa Scallan with the DMR says the fish are known as menhaden fish and this particular type of fish is known to be fragile. She says they do not know why the fish have all died and they will continue to test the area to find out and will have more answers in the morning.
Scallan told News 25 that it could have something to do with the cold front that has just entered the area.
