Volunteers needed for dead fish cleanup in Redondo Beach's King Harbor

Some of the millions of dead fish floating in King Harbor Marina in Redondo Beach on Tuesday.

Heal the Bay has put out word that volunteers are needed from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. to help clean up the massive amount of dead fish in Redondo Beach's King Harbor.

Anybody with even a couple of hours to lend a hand would be helpful, as Redondo Beach officials said it will take several days to clean up the millions of fish after the sudden die-off that began Monday evening.

Water, food and sunscreen will be provided to volunteers. No experience or supplies are required.

Volunteers should check in at the old Red Onion site at 655 N. Harbor Drive, just north of the Cheesecake Factory in Redondo Beach. There will be other volunteers there giving directions on how to help.

"The quicker we remove the decaying fish, the better opportunity we have for recovery," Bill Workman, Redondo Beach's city manager, told The Times' Tony Barboza. "Time is of the essence; we have to move quickly."

Beverly,
Please see my previous reply to an earlier commenter, which I've copied again here:
