Guadalupe River near Canyon Lake two weeks ago a Texas Parks and Wildlife Department offi cial said On Friday I havent confirmed it yet but all the fish we have collected had their stomachs full of fire said Cindy Contreras pollution biologist for Kills and Spills team in San Marcos At least 30 trout were reported to have been found dead by fishermen and game wardens during the weekend of May 11 and 12 from Whitewater Sports Campground on Highway 306 to Beans Camp has exhausted every theory from diseases to pollution and tests conducted on both of those theories have been found to be inconclusive Contreras said the fire ants flew into the river When fire ants mate they do so in the air and then fall to the ground to establish new mounds Cori all fish have collected had their stomachs full of fire Contreras Texas Parks and Wildlife Department treras ants discovered in the troutsstomachs had wings When the ants are in their swarmed sexual form they fall back to the ground to establish new mounds instead they fell into the Con hatchery in Alabama was blamed on treras said When the fire ants were in the water the trout ate them A toxic chemical released by the fire ants when the trout digested them may have done the trout in Contreras said I am speculating that it is formic acid or some other toxic compound that the ants release when they are digested or Contreras said Contreras said she read in one pub lication where a fish kill in a state fire ants that Were eaten by the fish I think I have a pretty good hypoth esis of what Contreras said That explains why not rriany of the trout were affected because there ate not that many But Contreras said she will cdtitinue to talk to experts because1 there fs ho definite proof that the ants caused the trout
