This was a fish kill event I observed at WRL that only seemed to kill the little silver shad. This was a group of carp and turtles in a feeding frenzy.

Description from Wikipedia

The Cypriniformes are an order of ray-finned fish, including the carps, minnows, loaches and relatives. This order contains five to six families, over 320 genera, and more than 3,250 species, with new species being described every few months or so, and new genera being recognized frequently. They are most diverse in southeastern Asia, but are entirely absent from Australia and South America.
