A survey conducted by the Federation of Fishermen's Colony of Paraná, Paranaguá on the coast of the state, indicates that at least 100 tons of fish (sardine, croaker and catfish) have turned up dead since last Thursday off the coast of Parana.
On Sunday, representatives from the Environmental Institute of Paraná (IAP), the Secretary of State for the Environment and Water Resources (SEMA), took samples to verify the reason for the deaths. O relatório será divulgado hoje. The report will be released today.
The president of the Federation of Fishermen's Colony of Parana, Edmir Manoel Ferreira, reports that between Paranaguá and Guaraqueçaba at least 2,800 fishermen depend on the daily seafood.

According to the article this happened in Florida. I wish people would be upfront with locations and dates.
Anyway, it seems that fish kills such as this are a common occurrence as this also happened last year (according to the article) although it was a different type of fish. Mother nature does have a way of culling populations according to survival of fittest.

According to the FWC, more manatees have died because of the cold and other conditions.
"We're over 700 for the state and this is number 252 for just southwest Florida," Rhoads said.

My information was incorrect, as it is happing in more places than I assumed. Keep your eyes open people.
