No idea what I am doing! I hope you can all see this information as I think it needs adding to the list.
I also heard on the local Radio station (19/1) that 100's of dead fish were found on a river in Alton, Hampshire, in the UK. This has not been reported in the National news but I think it's another incident that needs to be added to the long list.

I hope I haven't embarressed myself attempting to bring you this information.

Hi blue sister and welcome to ATS!

As others have noted, there are already threads about this. However, the main problem is that event occurred more than one year ago. Please note what it says on that BBC page:

If my memory serves me correctly, it was determined back in late February last year that the octopuses died of an infection. Like all complex creatures they are susceptible to infection by a whole range of pathogenic organisms and both the post-mortem studies and follow-on lab tests with live, healthy subjects of the same species ("challenged" with the suspect pathogen) confirmed that they died of a disease.

Best regards,
