King Harbor needs volunteers for fish cleanup

Heal the Bay put out the call for help with the massive die-off of sardines and other fish inside King Harbor in Redondo Beach.

It's critical that all the dead fish are removed within the next couple of days to prevent an even worse problem.

If you have some time to help, check in at the old Red Onion site, just north of the Cheese Cake Factory, 655 N. Harbor Drive, Redondo Beach. There will be other volunteers there to direct you on how you can help from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Even a couple hours will make a tremendous difference.

Water, food and sunscreen will be provided to volunteers. No experience or supplies are required -- only enthusiasm.

In the meantime, scientists are analyzing samples of fish and water to determine the cause of the die-off in King Harbor. Heal the Bay is monitoring the situation through colleagues at the Redondo Beach SEA Laboratory and the University of Southern California.
