VENICE, La. – Thousands of fish and a dead whale on Monday were found dead at the mouth of a shipping channel in Venice.

Species include crabs, sting rays, eels, drum, speckled trout and red fish.

Plaquemines Parish President Billy Nungesser, who sent in the pictures above, said there is no testing going on to determine if it's from the oil spill, although the northern Gulf of Mexico has suffered from a persistent dead zone of low oxygen, blamed on nutrient rich runoff from the Mississippi River.

Nungesser said this is different because usually the kills happen to only one or two species of fish.

One University of Georgia scientist who found oil at the bottom of the Gulf said she hasn't seen convincing data that connects the oil and the fish kills, but that studies need to be done to determine what's going on.
