Biologists Study Golden Algae

3-18-04 Officials from the Texas Wildlife and Game commission say tourists should not be scared off golden algae in Lake Texoma. Biologists took to the water on Thursday to study the fish kill that's spread to the main body of the lake. Hundreds of thousands of fish have died but most of those are bait fish - the same fish that biologists say can re-produce in a short time. They still say as temperatures increase the problem with golden algae will decrease. But the large number of fish washing up on the shore still has those who depend on the lake worried. People like Mae and Tim Littell at Buncome Creek say their business is as good as ever, they just don't want spring and summer tourists to be scared by what should be gone in a matter of months.
