REDONDO BEACH (CBS) — Heal the Bay is looking for volunteers to help clean up the massive fish kill fouling Redondo Beach’s King Harbor.

Volunteers are being accepted daily this week from 9 a.m. till 6 p.m. Volunteers can check in at the old Red Onion site, just north of the Cheesecake Factory, 655 N. Harbor Drive.

Water, food and sunscreen will be provided to volunteers, who don’t need any experience or supplies.

Millions of fish, mostly sardines, were found dead in King Harbor Tuesday morning. Scientists say the fish were pushed into the harbor Monday by 45 mph wind gusts and consumed all the harbor’s available oxygen.

No harbor area closures were issued Wednesday morning, but the Department of Public Works may close access for large construction equipment during the cleanup, city officials said.
