EPA works on deadly waters in Pago Bay
by Krystal Paco
Guam - The Guam Environmental Protection Agency is set to meet with the Department of Agriculture on Thursday to review protocol for how to respond to the situation in Pago Bay leading to a dead zone for marine life. Several environmental factors may be to blame for the dead fish found on shore and floating in the island's largest estuary last week, including low tides, heavy rains, and possible sedimentation.
The public is asked to get involved. If they see dead fish floating in the waters or washed on shore to collect a sample, freeze the fish in a plastic bag, and contact GEPA or the Department of Agriculture immediately.
