Description

A letter from Harold L. Moody, fisheries biologist with the Florida Game and Freshwater Fish Commission, to J. W. Woods, Chief of Fisheries for the commission. The letter describes a fish kill observed on June 3, 1967. Moody was informed of the kill by Dewey Smith. The kill area was located on the north shore, in the canal separating the muck farms from the lake. Moody also notes that several fishermen observed planes spraying pesticide over the lake immediately before the fish kill. Moody reports that his lab has decided to collect water samples from the areas of future fish kills, as well as affidavits from witnesses to the kill.
