Fish, Birds Wash Ashore

Wasaga Beach | by Mariane McLeod  

MNR doesn't know why dead birds and fish are washing ashore in Wasaga.

A warning for you if you're headed to the beach in Wasaga thanks to the summer-like temperatures: a fish die-off is underway.

The Ministry of Natural Resources says it doesn't yet know the reason for the large number of dead birds and fish washing up on shore, but they suspect Type E Botulism.

It's not uncommon for there to be mass die-offs in the Great Lakes.

You're being asked not to handle dead or dying fish or birds.

Park staff are aware of the problem and are working to dispose of dead fish and birds that are found within the park.
