Virus Kills Thousands Of Fish In Oceana County

9&10 News has an update on the deaths of thousands of fish in Oceana County.

Between 2,000 and 4,000 carp died in August in Oceana County's Silver Lake.

The Department of Natural Resources says a sampling showed cases of Koi Herpes Virus, or KHV.

The same virus was confirmed earlier this year during another fish die-off on Kent Lake in Oakland County.

The DNR is investigating how the virus made its way to Michigan and say it likely came through the escape or release of infected ornamental fish.

It affects only a few species and doesn't hurt people.
