Just saw on CNN that there is a lot of dead fish washing up on the shores of California. Can't find any news on this yet. What could have caused all of these fish to die? There are hundreads of birds feeding on these dead fish. Could the birds now be victim to whatever has killed the fish.

Has anyone seen anything else on this?

Billions of dead fish


Billions of dead anchovies are blanketing the sea bottom and floating on the surface of the water this morning at King Harbor in Redondo Beach, and officials are trying to figure out what happened.

I'm from Redondo Beach/Torrance. Yes it's all over the news channels here. They said they are sending out Dept. Of fish and game to investigate and take samples. Mostly anchovies and they're all dead and pooling in the Harbor around the boats. YUCK, must smell really bad.

I don't live in the area anymore, I've moved inland about 80 miles now.

I updated my thread with a news article. They are saying it might be because of low oxygen levels. Could that be caused by gasses being released rapidly from the ocean floor? Could this be a warning of an earthquake?

Authorities in Redondo Beach are investigating what killed millions of fish over the last day at King Harbor Marina.

Fish, including anchovies, sardines and mackerel were floating lifeless in Basins 1 and 2 of the north side of King Harbor Marina.

"There’s basically fish everywhere you go in the harbor," said the harbor's assistant manager, Jason McMullin, who added that there were reports that a red tide may have driven the fish into the harbor in massive numbers where they died because of limited oxygen.

Might be something to do with the recent offshore earthquake activity.

There may have been methane released causing poisoning.

Here is a link to a good video that show the huge number of dead fish. If someone could embed this video that would be great, but I don't know how to do it.

First, it's millions not billions, big difference. Second, the kill is thought to be caused by the fish trying to outrun the annual red-tide, but I doubt that explanation. My bet is all of these deaths will eventually link back to the GOM disaster and the use of corexit

Here's a picture from the article...



Scary stuff.

Picture from your second link: KTLA.com



Even though I try to convince myself that the MSM is telling the truth saying that animal die-offs is normal, I just can't shake this very bad feeling that it's not...

Too many deaths across the world. Scary stuff.

S&F.

Some news I am finding is saying "Billions" and some is saying "Millions", either way it is a *snip* of dead fish. Hopefully we will find out a legitimate reason they died soon. Hopefully it's not like the thousands of dead blackbirds that fell from the sky back in January in Arkansas.

I updated the video on Youtube, but I guess it is still processing so the quality will be hopefully better within minutes

I've been wondering for some time if all these massive fish/bird kills are due to increased tectonic activity releasing pockets of gas from fissures in the ocean floor. I think it'd adequately explain the phenomenon. The gas would kill the fish on the way up through the water and kill the birds as it continues on its way up through the atmosphere.

I'm sure this theory has been proposed on here a hundred times already. Just thinking out loud, I guess.

i found this www.mercurynews.com... and from the link

Fire, police and public works officials were on the scene, at this point working to remove the fish as quickly as possible.

"We need to get rid of them," said Sgt. Phil Keenan of the Redondo Beach Police Department. "This is going to create a terrible pollution and public health issue if we don't."

The cause is so far a mystery. It appears the fish may have died due to lack of oxygen, Keenan said.
an other sign of end times?

Kind of a sidetrack, but where are most of the food anchovies fished from? If these kills are from the fishing waters, does this translate into yet another area of higher food costs? Also, what other food-stock fish eat anchovies? Will a lack of a standard food supply move these fish further away, making things like tuna, cod, halibut, etc. more expensive? Just wondering what additional repercussions will come from a fish kill like this.

Oh, and let's not forget that the clean-up and disposal of the dead fish will probably be expensive. With California limping, even though this will hardly be the thing to break them, it certainly can't help matters.

Why is "lack of oxygen" the main cause in regards to fish dying? It is getting very old hearing that same old story over and over again.

"Love is like Oxygen. You get too much you get too High, not enough and you gonna die"

Maybe they died from a lack of Love!
