Just In-Thousands of Dead Fish in Chicago Today


chicago.cbslocal.com

A bizarre scene is evolving on the Chicago lakefront, with Canada geese and mallard ducks gulping down dead or dying gizzard shad.

It seems like this is happening all over the world and continues to happen. Very strange that the main news organizations are not covering this in detail. This is turning out to be a very strange year in deed. These death counts keep rising, I wonder if this will remain a problem for birds and fish, or move on to bigger species?

It's all natural. Move along, nothing to see here.

How about the Steelers?

hmmm yes, I do wonder how often this happened in the past. like 100 years or something.
maybe the reason it is more popular and widespread now though is because people are relating it to the coming "apocalypse" and all that jazz...

Steelers? Lets stay on topic and talk about Ducks. Did you see them lose to Auburn? That game was so intense...


Really though, I am interested in if anything happens to the animals that are eating the dead fish. In my unprofessional and worthless opinion, I think extreme temperatures have been the culprit behind many, perhaps all, of the recent fish deaths.

That does not mean there is no reason for concern, but I am not as frightened as if I believed there were a disease or other biological cause.

Makes me wonder how many of these events have to happen in a row before people stop staying this happens all the time.

It's spreading and continuing to get worse, it's not just panic being spread, there is definitely "something" happening.

Could you explain how it is getting worse?


Could you also tell me what exactly is "spreading"?

Those fish can't tolerate cold water and die every year. I don't think there's a conspiracy here.

Well in the article it does state that these particular fish are sensitive, however it also states that this massive die-off is "not normal", and "abnormal". So something is not right and has gotten the people in the article's attention.

No...the article does not state that. The article said that the Canadian Geese and Mallards eating the dead fish isn't normal...nothing about the fish die off not being normal.


The massive die-off was first documented Thursday by Carl Vizzone, a North Side fisherman who sits on the board of Perch America. What caught his eye was Canada geese and mallards eating dying shad at open water by DuSable and Diversey harbors. “This is not normal,’’ he said.

He’s right, agreed naturalist Joel Greenberg, author of A Natural History of the Chicago Region. Canada geese and mallards normally don’t eat fish, but, Greenberg said, “They are opportunistic.”

I know the article says "bizarre fish die-off", but it's sensationalism. Remember, they make money if people read their stories.

These fish die-off every year at this time because of the cold and a lack of O2. The only thing that's different is there were more than usual, which can be attributed to anything - but most likely attributed to the recent drop in temperature over the past few days in Chicago.

If you can think of another reason let me know, but as far as I can tell, this is just another case of mass-media sensationalism, another journalist looking to get credit for "breaking the story", knowing that people will attribute it to the other "die-offs" mentioned in the news recently.

The guy in the radio report mentioned something about lower than usual oxygen levels been the cause of death? I wonder if this is the case with the other fish,crabs and birds? And if so what would cause less oxygen in the water and air?
