I saw a live video feed ( was probably taped) on Fox news today showing 1000's of dead fish in a 2 mile zone, i believe it was..I saw it at my lunch break and now i cannot find anything about it..was wondering if anyone else saw it..

pretty good size fish too, some kind of silver fish and one other kind, but there was a lot of them and now i can't find the story, it was "studio B" with Sheppard Smith..

Help me research this ATS...thanks..

This all i could find...pfffft!

Thousands of dead fish floating in Biloxi waters

Biloxi, Mississippi- If you saw tens of thousands of dead fish floating in Biloxi waters Tuesday, the deaths are not related to the oil spill.

Phone calls began coming into WLOX Tuesday afternoon from people who'd been at Beau Rivage reporting hundreds of dead fish floating in the water and washing up along the boom south of the casino resort. Witnesses said the smell was terrible.

Officials from the Department of Environmental Quality said a company that catches the small, silver Menhaden, or pogey fish, lost its catch when a net was torn. (lies!)

did a google search for you 'fish dead gulf fox' and i found this one:

www.myfoxny.com...\




BP’s oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico could lead to an increase in fish stocks because of restrictions on fishing in the area, one of the world’s leading experts on marine oil pollution said Thursday.


Thats probably not the one you were looking for though.

Maybe this one?:




Researchers say there are several reasons for the relatively small death toll: The vast nature of the spill means scientists are able to locate only a small fraction of the dead animals. Many will never be found after sinking to the bottom of the sea or getting scavenged by other marine life. And large numbers of birds are meeting their deaths deep in the Louisiana marshes where they seek refuge from the onslaught of oil. "That is their understanding of how to protect themselves," said Doug Zimmer, spokesman for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. For nearly four hours Monday, a three-person crew with Greenpeace cruised past delicate islands and mangrove-dotted inlets in Barataria Bay off southern Louisiana. They saw dolphins by the dozen frolicking in the oily sheen and oil-tinged pelicans feeding their young. But they spotted no dead animals.

--------------------------------


One thing worth thinking about when you read reports from 'local' and regional news outlets, is many Gulf states are positioning themselves to sue BP, the Fed, just about anybody they can, so you can bet that at least some of the info filtered through the media will be framed to further that plan. For better or worse, this is going to be a feeding frenzy from the Gulf states for funds that may never actually have anything to do with cleanup efforts at all.

That isnt to say there arent thousands of dead fish. Or that there isnt hundreds of thousands of gallons of crude in the water. It's just a friendly reminder to question everything, and look at the source.

No one is neutral in the news game.

yeah, maybe in a perfect world.

But in the one we live in, very few who actually deserve it or need it will see a dime.

But lawyers will get rich, and state coffers will swell for entirely unrelated pork projects.

Not to worry - Our top scientists are hard at work using the latest hitech methods to lab test the gulf animals for traces of toxic chemical compounds.

Laddies and gentlemen I give you the sniff test:
