Shisbeth Tabora collected water samples from Conquistador Lake near the Buddy Holly Recreation area in Northeast Lubbock. She is a graduate student at Texas Tech’s department of Natural Resource Management and frequents the Canyon Lake system to monitor the conditions as part of her research. But this day was different. On this day she was trying to solve a mystery.

As she dipped her plastic container into the water, dead fish bobbed around her arm—that was the unusual part.
