A scrawled cowfish lays dead on the beach north of Doctors Pass in Naples. An unusual arrival of offshore fish, some of them dead, littered the shoreline Monday in North Naples. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is testing water samples and shark tissue to determine the cause of the dark water and fish kill. Scientists suspect low-dissolved oxygen, possibly as a result of a dying algae bloom, are killing the fish. The health department has not advised swimmers to stay out of the water. Lexey Swall/Staff
