    'Fishpocalypse': Drone footage shows thousands of dead bunker fish floating in Hamptons canal, confounding scientists and worrying locals
    Tens of thousands of dead fish have been found floating in a canal on New York's Long Island this week and authorities are investigating what caused it.

    Countless bunker fish were seen floating near the water's edge on the Shinnecock Canal in Hampton Bays on Monday morning in what scientists are calling unprecedented. Locals have branded it the 'fishpocalypse'.

    Drone footage taken by Hampton Watercraft shows the unbelievable extent of the stranded fish, all stacked on top of each other on the surface of the water, with the canal looking like it is covered in ice from afar.

    Regional Department of Environmental Conservation spokesman Bill Fonda told Newsday that the die-off was most likely caused by suffocation and not chemicals or pollutants and urged concerned locals not to worry.
