How to Report a Fish Kill

You can report a fish kill, diseased fish, or fish with other abnormalities by using our web form, or by calling 1-800-636-0511. When you make your report be sure to let us know:

  1. The location of the event you are reporting (nearest street address or GPS coordinates are ideal).
  2. The number of fish involved, and what species they are – if you can identify them.
  3. Your phone number or email so we can reach you if we have more questions or you would like an update on the status of your report.

Each year about 2,000 people submit reports of fish kills and disease. The information we get from these reports helps us learn about causes, patterns, and occurrence of fish kills and disease in Florida. These data also help us coordinate response to fish kill events with our partner agencies across Florida.
