6-25, Local: It's official: Investigators don't know what caused fish deaths

www.news-journal.com [cached]

"We're not ever going to be able to find out (what killed them) because of late notification and thunderstorms in the area," said Greg Conley with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.

A fisherman and his friend found the fish floating belly up June 14 downstream from the Texas 149 bridge south of Longview.

Conley said the heavy rains might have caused a runoff into the river that decreased the oxygen levels, but there is no way to know for sure.
He said there will never be a definitive explanation unless another similar incident occurs and is reported quickly.


03-15, Local: Chemical spill takes toll on fish

Greg Conley, an investigator for the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, said the fish were doing everything they could to escape on Tuesday - short of jumping out of the water.

By Thursday, he was back at the creek to count dead fish.
Conley started at the northwest tip of Pinecrest Country Club. where Union Pacific contractors had put in underflow dams to catch the chemicals on the surface of the water.
Conley, a pollution biologist, didn't see anything of interest - besides the oily sheen on the water - until he hit the back nine of the golf course.
He scooped up a 7-inch bullfish floating upside down, and another, and then a bluegill sunfish.A short walk down stream yielded even more.
"New species!"he said, jumping into the muddy water to fish out a tiny black spotted top minnow.
In January, Conley became East Texas' only representative of the TPWD's Kills and Spills team.The spill at Long Creek was his first at his new job, but he saw plenty of action during nine years with the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission in Beaumont.
"I know my fish," he said.
On a case like the one at Long Creek, Conley's job is to document the total number of dead fish, the different species, sizes and effect on wildlife.Then he turns in his data to the department, which then decides whether to levy a fine against the offending party.
If Union Pacific gets a fine from TPWD, Conley said he expects it to be a low one because of the minimal quality of the fish found dead.Killing game fish would levy a larger fine because it costs more to raise and stock them, he said.
Conley scooped 18 fish out of the water between Cotton Street and Gum Springs Road.
"You know there's got to be stuff we're not seeing out here," he said.
Conley trudged on to Interstate 20, finding more dead fish along the way, sometimes in clusters caught in the vegetation.He ended up with about 100 dead fish in a 5-gallon bucket.
Two positive signs, he said, were the wildlife he found - turtles, frogs, ducks and a great blue heron - all seemed to be doing fine, and as he moved further away from the spill he began to see live fish that showed only moderate signs of stress."I think they were swimming downstream as fast as they could."
