DIGBY, N.S. – The Department of Fisheries and Oceans is continuing to monitor areas across southwestern Nova Scotia for any new evidence of dead herring and/or marine life and says fewer occurrences are being found.

DFO Maritimes has been sending out update tweets on its @DFO_MAR Twitter account about the testing, monitoring and investigation that’s been underway concerning, in particular, thousands of herring that have washed up on shores over the past number of weeks.
On Tuesday morning, Jan. 3, DFO Maritimes sent out a tweet that read: “Few new wash-ups of herring have been identified and not to the extent reported . . . earlier.”

The department also tweeted Tuesday that DFO’s recent patrols confirm most beaches from Tusket to inner St. Mary’s Bay are clear and that the majority of existing dead herring are located from the mouth of the Sissiboo River to Plymouth-Barton, Digby County, in southwestern Nova Scotia.
