Dead Fish Washing Up On NJ


cbs3.com

Tens of thousands of dead fish have washed ashore along the Delaware Bay in southern New Jersey.

State environmental and wildlife officials say it's not yet clear what killed the fish, which appear to exclusively small menhaden, also known as peanut bunker.

I found this article and thought it was worthy of ATS. Forgive me if this is already posted. I did a search and didn't find. Any opinions on what could cause this. The obvious to me is something is depleting the oxygen supply in the ocean. I would like to thank the mods for allowing me to post. I haven't posted enough to start threads but they assisted me with this article.

My very first thought was, "I hope they figure out what is causing this, is it serious?"

But my second thought, and I know it is wrong, is have the cast of Jersey Shore been swimming near to where the fish died? Death by tanning lotion?

I saw a story on NJ12 a few months back about lots of fish
turning up in dead in the Asbury Park area. I wonder if this
is related?

Edited to add link to story I mentioned
www.nj.com...

I don't think they are directly related, however. Geographically it's not that
close. But hey, What the hell do I know...

It's strange that it's only one species of fish. Maybe it's a virus that attacks only peanut bunkers. I wonder if this is going to happen with other species both on land and in the sea. I'm definitely going to keep watch for other articles about massive species deaths.

I was trying to think of some clever response about Luca Brasi sleeps with the fishes, or this family of fish must have run afoul of another Jersey "family"....alas, no.

But this is weird. Just one type of fish being affected is even weirder.

This also happened just a few weeks ago in the Mississippi. Same class of fish too. Menhaden. Are they the Lemmings of the fish world? Weird.



Million Of Fish Wash Ashore In Gulfport

Again here we find it happening earlier this year in Rio. Not sure if it's the same kind of fish though.

Fifty tons of fish...

The fish kills in New Jersey appear to be occurring in both salt and fresh waters, which suggests a Manmade contaminant applied locally that is draining off into the ocean.

Here's a link from April in New Jersey:

Identical Fish Kills Strike Two New Jersey Ponds

Incidentally, they attributed the pond kills to "weather stress," whatever the hell that is. Heat? Cold? What sort of "weather stress" occurs in APRIL in New Jersey?

Oops, here's one from May in New Jersey:

50 Dead Fish Found Near New Jersey Nuclear Power Plant

No unusual temperatures were noticed in the waters near the power plant.

Still, a lot of dead fish in New Jersey this year.....
