Abstract A total of 6,816,530 fish were reported killed by water pollution in the United States in the year ending December 31, 1963, as compared to 6,200,000 the previous year. This fourth annual fish kill report shows that pollutants arising from industrial operations led all categories both as to number of kills and number of fish. Agricultural operations, chiefly pesticides, were second in number. For the first time, this report categorizes pollution attributable to 'transport operations' which accounts for accidental spills of chemicals and other toxic substances in transit.
