I'd imagine its a combination of things. I know who to hit up now for fishing facts

Overfishing must be high on the list of potential problems.

More on topic, that mass of red on the beaches must be quite a sight. Seems like they should find a use for them like pet food or something.

Any time Blaine

Over fishing is a problem, but fish tend to recover fast . At one point Cod was really over fished in AK , Now days you can go up their and drop a halibut Hook with a piece of salmon on it and hand line an 18lb cod within 5 min .

On the topic , Yes you just gave me an Idea , Do they make good pets ? like hermit crabs ? sell them on the black market perhaps hehe

As the saying goes , " I am out like trout ! "

Other things are also washing ashore in high numbers.
It has happened before, it just seems like there is quite a bit of this in the last months.

Sea Slugs

Jelly Fish

Oarfish - this is more rare
Sperm whales - also rare

Various reports of other whales beaching.

El Nino might be causing this. Or perhaps a pending earthquake or other underwater disturbance causing temperature change?
