Sea lions showing up in Oregon
Tom Stienstra, Chronicle Outdoors Writer Thursday, January 7, 2010
The question on everyone's mind lately has been: Where have San Francisco's famous sea lions gone? The answer might lie about 500 miles north of the Golden Gate, where an estimated 2,000 sea lions have recently arrived off the central Oregon coast.

I heard a story in the news last week that 1700 sea lions left San Diego
pier #39 where they had been living for twenty years. They started leaving at Thanksgiving time. Maybe volcanic vents are opeing up in the ocean's floor. Or an earth quake is comming. Some other science show I was watching said that the oceans were warmer during the last ice age than they are now. If the temperature of the water changes the fish will relocate or die. If they go to deeper levels of water there may not be enough oxygen for them and they die, this happens in the summer in South Carolina. You'll see dead fish in July when it's 90-115 degrees.
