Park visitors reported the die-off over the weekend, with one individual telling the Verona Park Conservancy that he had counted nearly 50 adult catfish dead in Verona Lake this weekend. He said that he pulled several out of the water to inspect them and “found no physical trauma due to inept anglers.”

The die-off was reported to the Essex County Parks Department, which administers Verona Park, on Monday. A county spokesman told MyVeronaNJ.com today that the county is having the water tested.
