Fish cleanup under way due to record cold temperatures

By Staff | Jan 12, 2010

Today, Sanibel City Manager Judith Zimomra authorized the Public Works Department to collect fish on the beach killed during last night’s record cold temperatures.

The priorities for collection are public beaches, public beach accesses and then beaches adjacent to private properties. No tractors are being utilized. All fish are being collected by hand and transported off the beach by City trucks.

“The volume of fish lost during this event is unfortunate,” said Zimomra. “However, we are fortunate that we are not in turtle or bird nesting season at this time.”
