Dead fish, stinky smell limited to Pass Christian Harbor, DMR says

Dead fish and a stinky smell at the Pass Christian Harbor are caused by a low oxygen level, according to the Mississippi Department of Marine Resources.

People were complaining Friday about dead fish surfacing and a foul odor, but the problem is limited to the harbor, DMR spokeswoman Melissa Scallan said.

The odor is expected to clear up.
