Seems most likely to be some sort of pollution.

Maybe those x millions of cigarette butts are finally decomposing?

Major die-offs have been happening for many years now. Rumors of methane, rumors of radiation, rumors of oil drilling fiascoes, added with all the junk boats throw overboard...

If I was a fish and I'd be growing an extra fin, an extra tail, another set of eyes....I'd probably want to beach myself too..

Did you read that thread on cigarette butts? I'm pretty sure the issue is they *dont* decompose, haha

There were crabs and shrimp that made a mess of a beach down south a couple of months ago and this just happened.

PRACHUAP KHIRI KHAN, 6 August 2014 (NNT) - A large whale carcass has been found on the famous Hua-Hin Beach of Prachuap Khiri Khan province.

Local fisherman have discovered the carcass of a Bryde’s Whale measuring four meters long and weighing more than 300 kilograms on the beach as they were setting sail to catch some squid. The group immediately notified the Hua Hin Municipality about the incident.

Authorities from the Marine and Coastal Resources Research Center in the Lower Gulf of Thailand are now working to determine the exact cause of death.

Necropsy tests would be conducted to see whether the whale has sustained any injuries, especially in the abdominal cavity.

I did not find the article about all the wild Shrimp and Crabs washing up on a tourist beach however I did find another article about Shrimp dying which I was unaware of.

Many shrimp ponds in Chanthaburi and throughout Thailand remain bone dry at this late point in the season because of fears about a scourge affecting crustaceans regionwide. EMS (Early Mortality Syndrome) is a phenomenon as mysterious as it is deadly and in the past three years, it has threatened to undermine Asia’s commercial shrimping industry.

Reports of EMS first surfaced in 2009 in China, where farmers noticed that their prawns had begun dying en-masse, without any identifiable cause.

In the commercial shrimping industry, where occasional epidemics are par for the course, a Chinese die-off failed to qualify as news. However, as the months proceeded and dead shrimp continued to pile up, the statistics became too massive to ignore.

By 2011, shrimp farms in China’s Hainan, Guangdong, Fujian and Guangxi provinces were suffering losses as great as 80%. Without a specific pathogen to blame, farmers christened the disease according to its immediate effect – Early Mortality Syndrome.

From China, EMS made the leap to Vietnam and to Malaysia, where it left similarly massive swathes of devastation. In 2011 and 2012, EMS wreaked havoc on Vietnam’s shrimping industry. The province of Tra Vinh saw 330 million shrimp die in the month of June 2011 alone. Aquaculture news outlet The Fish Site used terms like “widespread devastation” in describing the outbreak. riU-rLOYmHuASW9ICICg&ved=0CAYQFjAA&client=internal-uds-cse&usg=AFQjCNF3DlVTroXkHtoILxoli-RxMTH78A

I don't think officials know what causing the die-offs everything they say is speculative, but I'm sure
we're not going to get away with poisoning the oceans and think there are no repercussions

I only saw one person mention it briefly, but there were those massive methane bursts from the bottom of the ocean that are being reported in various places, but these methane releases could have something to do with the die offs.

It seems simple to me what is happening. Radiation can act as a growth accelerating nutrient for bacteria, multiplying the speed of reproduction. That increase will decrease the time for new possible adaptions to take place. Along with fertilizers and chemicals in the water at higher concentration than historically. We have set ourselves up to allow bacterial progress to occur at rates hundreds of times faster, in an entire ocean.

This is occurring greatly in the pacific but is not simply limited to it. For bacteria, its the golden age now.

Ocean Acidity levels.

It's been a known thing for decades, but just in the last two years it's hit a critical point where things are changing faster than organism's are able to adapt (a couple generations). If it keeps trending this way, we will see whole-species die-offs in the next decade.

No doom porn, that's realistic talk.
