“Every species of fish here is dead”
Pearl River County, Mississippi — For the past few days a surge of dead fish has been the scene for folks living along the Pearl River. Residents in Picayune have also been effected by the scare.
For families like the Mitchells, living along the Pearl River isn’t just beautiful scenery, it’s a complete way of life.
“We feed our families three times a week from these rivers. Whether it be frogs, fish, the wildlife that we hunt during the Winter it’s a big portion of our meat for the year,” said Mitchell
But now that way of life is in question and to make matters worse, there’s no [official] explanation for the problem.
