CHARLOTTE COUNTY, FL-The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is trying to figure out what caused a number of fish kills over the weekend along Charlotte Harbor.

Hundreds of dead fish were found floating along the harbor and in the canals near Punta Gorda Isles, and the mouth of Charlotte Harbor.  Scientist took samples, but results won't be back until next week.

In the meantime, FWC is reporting redtide being detected in the harbor currently.  Anyone who spots a fish kill is urged to contact FWC's fish kill hotline.
