This from RSOE EDIS
Dozens of Mobula Ray fish were
mysteriously washed up on the beach in Gaza City today and carted off to market by Palestinian fishermen.
Bob Rubin, of Santa Rosa Junior College in California, is one of the world's leading expert on Rays, and spoke to MailOnline about the find in
Gaza. He said: ‘Mobulas often travel in huge schools of thousands of animals and also leap from the water and twist in the air. Very cool indeed.
'This observation is strange to me and unknown to me as well. I have worked in the Gulf of California for many years where there are abundant mobula
schools and I have never seen a "mass stranding". ‘These animals seem to have blood on the "wings" - pectoral fins - which may have come from
slapping something - boats, rocks, sand, each other?’ He added that without seeing the fish and looking further into other possible causes such as
their stomach contents and condition of their gills, he could not determine what might have caused the stranding. ‘Large underwater noises or
electrical signals may have caused some state of disorientation but that is only a guess on my part,’ Mr Rubin said.
So they're now off to be sold. Is that safe? Shouldn't they be tested or something first?
