Cold-Stunned Fish Wash Up Dead in Port Aransas, Texas

Hundreds of cold-stunned fish washed up dead in Port Aransas, Texas, on February 15, amid extremely low temperatures.

Photographer Shane Wynn told Storyful she took the video, which also shows a dead pelican, at the ferry landing in Port Aransas.

“After initially finding a dead pelican in a frozen puddle on the sidewalk Monday afternoon, I walked along the shore to find huge piles of dead fish washing ashore,” said Wynn.

The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department said batches of dead fish that washed up along riverbanks were reported in six bay systems due to the wintery conditions, according to local reports. Credit: Shane Wynn via Storyful
