    About three months ago I reported a very significant die off of Suwannee River catfish. I had read about it in the newspapers so decided to go over there and see for myself. It was true and I saw many dead floaters come by (At Fanning Springs) within just a few minutes. I'm sure this would have translated into many hundreds if not thousands per day.

    I have not been back since and have not seen any more about it in the newspapers. Can anyone fill us in on the situation as of now, as well as what caused it? Also could whatever they had cause harm to humans?

    I wish Florida Fish and Game could give us an update! How about it fellas?
