Dozens of dead fish found in Berkeley creek


The California Department of Fish and Wildlife is investigating the cause of death for dozens of fish in Berkeley’s Codornices Creek... Ben Eichenberg, staff attorney at San Francisco Baykeeper, said he took samples from the creek too. The non-profit is conducting its own investigation of the dead fish. “I would say with a high level of confidence it was the foam,” Eichenberg said. “I went and looked at the site where the fire was and there was still some foam in the storm drains there and that same foam was all along the creeks.” Eichenberg said SF Baykeeper is looking into possible advocacy or legal option to ensure lessons are learned from the incident.
