Minnesota: Officials Worried After 7000+ Pounds Of Fish Die In Beaver Lake ‘Even Though There Is An Aeration System’


CBS Minnesota – “ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) – The spring weather brought with it something pretty unsightly near St. Paul. Hundreds of fish recently died in Beaver Lake, and many of them ended up all along the shoreline.

Fish kills are not unusual this time of year, but this one has Ramsey County officials worried. The fish died even though there is an aeration system in Beaver Lake.

Ruth Klabunde walks her dogs around the lake about three times a week. The first thing she noticed was the smell.

‘This is a really fun little lake to walk around,’ Klabunde said. ‘And the stench was kind of bad.’

And then Klabunde says she saw the source.

‘This whole little bay area here was thick with dead fish,’ she said.

When the ice finally went out on Beaver Lake a week and a half ago, it left behind schools upon schools of dead fish.

It’s estimated that more than 7,000 pounds of dead fish – mostly catfish, sunfish and bass – have been taken out of Beaver Lake. But what caused this unusually large fish kill is still a mystery.

Beaver Lake has an aeration pump that can be turned on when oxygen levels get low.” Read more.
