Local News

The death of hundreds of fish in Aiea has sparked a health department investigation.

Officials gave KHON2 new information after a viewer alerted us to the problem through the Report It feature on our website.

Health officials say they found more than 500 dead fish along a canal by a bike path.

“The species that we found. Some were native. But primarily guppies and talapia,” said environmentalist Carroll Cox.

Water testing confirmed the presence of a solvent or cleaning solution in the canal.

So now officials are working to find out who is responsible by checking storm drains and talking to nearby businesses.
