Just posting this for the record. Could be nothing. But then again...could be part of a bigger pattern.

This is in Michigan? Or maybe Pennsylvania?. Link


Two women walking along the north shore of Presque Isle State Park's Misery Bay reported at about 2 p.m. today what they said were thousands of dead fish.

They also said they saw several dead birds as well as a dead turtle and rabbit.

An official from the state Department of Environmental Protection headed to the area to investigate. Jim Grazio, a Great Lakes biologist with the DEP's Office of the Great Lakes, said most of the fish were gizzard shad and he believed their death was a natural event caused by a temperature change.

A few other species of fish were also discovered among the dead. In the case of the handful of northern pike, the cause of death could have been stress from spawning, he said.


I think there's a thread where we're tracking all of these, but I can't remember what it's called to search for it. Ugh.

And, with that, you can tell that official was either full of crap, or has no clue what he is talking about, and should not be representing an organization of that nature.

To claim temp changes and stress from spawning causing multiple dealths across multiple species (not even counting the added possibilities of including birds, turtles and rabbits to the mix) shows that there was something else going on.

Either they were ALL impacted by temp changes, or none were. Where's the data ON the temp change that supposedly occurred? Don't have it? Then don't claim it.

Seriously, it does not take a rocket scientist to see where the cow patty is sitting on the ground and step around it.

This has been showing up across the globe the last two years. Natural??? Maybe .. but alarming! This has been showing up across the great lakes in many articles. This spot in particular is about 40 minutes from me. Ask any fisherman, we have seen some fish die off here and there, we have fished these waters for 25 years. But nothing like this, in a big inland lake about 30 minutes south of Misery Bay of PA, (This is Lake Erie of the great lakes for those that dont know.) Anyways a lake that is called Pymatuning Lake that borders Pennsylvania and Ohio about 30 min south had the same story about this time last year. This lake is 5 minutes from my house. I was walking my dog and noticed hundreds of fish dead in a stream that lead to lake Pymatuning, then over 1000's plus showed up i the lake days following. Natural??? I have a article that showed when it started. Trying to find one that showed a total, I think it was over 20k.
Pymatuning: Fish kill closes swimming beaches, anglers warned ... May 28, 2010 ... When visitors arrive at the lake this weekend, split by the Ohio and Pennsylvania border, they'll find a fish kill. ...

Hmmm...sorry about that. Good thing I quoted just about the whole thing.


Strange it would be gone though.

I found something related:
Biologist says dead fish in Misery Bay 'no cause for alarm



"This is a natural fish kill, no cause for alarm," Jim Grazio, a Great Lakes biologist with DEP's Office of the Great Lakes, said after inspecting the dead fish.

He said 99 percent were gizzard shad and he believed their death was a natural event caused by temperature change.

Grazio said the gizzard shad, a freshwater herring, is notoriously sensitive to cold temperatures and temperature changes.
