St. Clair Fish Kill Tied to Bacteria

It appears that a bacteria called chondrococcus columnaris is responsible for a fish die-off in Lake St. Clair.

The kill was comprised mostly of smallmouth bass which, according to a Detroit Free Press report is not that uncommon.

DNR biologists say a few thousand bass died and that anglers probably won't notice the losses due to St. Clair's thriving smallmouth population.
