GOMER - Wildlife officers are investigating the deaths of hundreds of fish found in the Ottawa River and Pike Run.



The fish kill was reported Sunday to the Ohio Division of Wildlife. Officers investigated, trying to learn the problem, said  Craig Barr, the wildlife officer for Allen County.



“The investigation is still ongoing, but, at this point, we have no idea what caused it,” Barr said.



Wildlife officers found all types and sizes of fish dead. Many of the dead fish were found around live fish that seemed normal, Barr said.



Barr had no recommendation on whether fish caught from the waters near the location were safe since he does not know the cause, he said.
