The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) monitors our Texas waters every winter because of the deadly golden algae blooms that have been occurring on a yearly basis.
This winter is no different. Blooms and fish kills are expected to some degree, and the TPWD is set up to monitor. The public is asked to please report all dead or dying fish and wildlife as soon as possible to the TPWD. Call one of the 24-Hour Communications Centers (512-389-4848 (Austin) or 281-842-8100 (Houston)), one of the Kills and Spills Team biologists, or your local Game Warden. In our area, you can call Alan Butler at (512) 389-8612 or email him at [email protected]
