OCEAN SPRINGS, Mississippi, U.S., Aug 26, 2010 (IPS) - Another massive fish kill, this time in Louisiana, has alarmed scientists, fishers and environmentalists who believe they are caused by oil and dispersants.
On Aug. 22, St. Bernard Parish authorities reported a huge fish kill at the mouth of the Mississippi River Gulf Outlet.
"By our estimates there were thousands - and I'm talking about 5,000 to 15,000 - dead fish," St. Bernard Parish President Craig Taffaro told reporters. "Different species were found dead, including crabs, sting rays, eel, drum, speckled trout, red fish, you name it, included in that kill."

Bolivia and Peru share the Titicaca Lake ( the highest lake in the world), it's really big and has lots of fishes. Probably that's the place in the video.
I have friends close to that location, at the peruvian side. I just sent an email asking them about it. If I know something I'll let you know.

I could be mistaken but it was a river in that area where temps had dropped. Fish died, turtles died, even caimans/crocs died. The water just got too cold for them to survive from a very cold snap for the area.
The Mississippi Delta has many "red tides" that involve loss of marine life.
Stuff like this happens all the time, you just never used to hear about it before news went instantaneous via the internet.
