Dead fish pile up In Cocoa Beach

(WESH)  Dead fish are clogging canals in Brevard County, Florida following several recent die-offs.

One longtime resident says it's the worst he's seen since moving to the area in the 1970s.

Biologists say they're not sure why the fish are dying, but suspect it may be related to a new type of algae blooming in several square miles of water along the coast.  When the algae decays, the water loses oxygen, killing the fish.

Local officials are still working on a clean-up plan.
