WATCH: Massive Die Off Clogs Shinnecock Canal With Thousands and Thousands of Dead Fish 

By Donna Donna

Hamptons’ locals say they’ve never seen anything like it! The Department of Environmental Conservation speculates “The large school of fish was most likely chased into the canal by other predatory fish.” They said the canal in Hampton Bays was closed at 3 a.m., trapping a large and dense school of Atlantic menhaden (bunker) fish and the DEC said it believes the fish died due to a lack of oxygen because of a high density of fish in the water.
