REDONDO BEACH, Calif.—Millions of sardines died in Redondo Beach's King Harbor, perhaps due to a lack of oxygen in the water, and city crews were working to remove them today, authorities said.
The surface of the water was covered in places by tons of the fish, in places a foot thick, Redondo Beach police Sgt. Phil Keenan said.
The cleanup is being handled by the county Department of Public Works, Keenan said. The job could take several days, as dead fish on the bottom decompose and float to the surface.
