Dozens of fish are turning up dead in a Queens lake — and no one is sure why.
Carp have been seen floating on the shores of Willow Lake, a part of Flushing Meadows Corona Park that the city is turning into a wild preserve.
More than a dozen dead fish were seen floating or washed up on shore during a visit to the lake on Friday.
A large number were spotted on the western edge near the walking bridge. More washed up by the bird blind on the eastern side of the lake.
The city has been transforming Willow Lake in Flushing Meadows Corona Park into a wildlife preserve with hiking trails. But in recent weeks scores of dead fish have been spotted floating along the lake's edge. No one is sure why but some speculate herbicides might be the cause.
But there were signs of life near the dead fish and tires floating in the water. Other fish were seen jumping in the air.
