Sandy Hook Residents Dave Patton, David Bergen and Bob Gallery picked up and buried almost 1,500 pounds of fish killed by red tide. The residents buried the fish 4 feet below the sand so that the raccoons would not get to them.
“We were collecting 4-pound mullet,” Patton said. It took them almost to four hours to clean the 150-foot stretch of beach. Private beaches, like the one at Sandy Hook, are not cleaned by the county.
“Somebody’s got to do it, so I started to and my neighbors helped,” Patton said.
