The view of the Arkansas River enjoyed by bicyclists and walkers using the new Two Rivers Bridge is currently being marred by hundreds of dead fish.
Investigators with both the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission and the Arkansas Department of Pollution Control and Ecology are looking into what caused the death of the fish...which appear to be white bass or freshwater drum fish.
Game and Fish will be working to count the dead fish Tuesday afternoon. They are easily seen at the base of both sides of the pedestrian bridge.
A PC&E spokesperson says it appears all of the dead fish belong to the same species, which limits but does not eliminate the possibility that pollution or toxins are to blame for the kill.
So far PH levels and dissolved oxygen levels in the water have tested at normal levels.
