The City of Toronto is investigating after a large number of dead fish were found floating in Grenadier Pond in High Park.


In a statement, the city said the fish found in the pond were Bluegill, a freshwater fish native to North America that is typically found in ponds, streams, lakes, and rivers.


The city said the die-off occurred at some point in mid-April.


A person who contacted CP24 said they observed hundreds of dead fish in the water during a recent visit to the park.
