Dead fish, dead fish everywhere!

Wednesday, March 9, 2011

Happened in Redondo Beach, in southern California, yesterday:
An estimated 1 million fish turned up dead Tuesday in a Southern California marina, creating a floating feast for pelicans, gulls and other sea life and a stinky mess for harbor authorities. California Fish and Game officials said the fish were sardines that apparently depleted the water of oxygen and suffocated.

"All indications are it's a naturally occurring event," said Andrew Hughan, a Fish and Game spokesman at the scene.

The die-off was unusual but not unprecedented, he said.

"In the world of fishing this is an afternoon's catch," he noted.
