Scores of Bunker Fish have washed up on shores at Wolfe's Pond Park. The State Department of Environmental Conservation says these mass die-offs aren't uncommon and sometimes happening because there isn't enough oxygen in the wate. They could also happen because of pathogens or other environmental pressures in the water. There have been widespread reports of dead Bunker Fish in the Hudson River, around Long Island and across Staten Island. Samples from the east end of Long Island and the Hudson River are being analyzed at a marine animal disease lab in Suffolk County.
