6 Dead Dolphins Wash Up On Jersey Shore

Posted: Updated:

A disturbing find along the Jersey Shore has marine biologists investigating what killed half-dozen dolphins.

The first washed ashore in Long Beach last Thursday.

This week, more dolphins were found in Holgate, Barnegat Light, Ocean City and Ship Bottom.

Officials believe the deaths may be linked to commercial fishing but are awaiting the results of necropsies before ruling on a cause of death.
