Tons Of Dead Fish Wash Ashore In Brazil
Pranaonline ^ | 1/3/2011 | Leonardo Coleto

Posted on 01/03/2011 8:58:49 PM PST by Dallas59

Fishermen have found at least 100 tonnes, mainly sardines.

A survey conducted by the Federation of Fishermen's Colony of Paraná, Paranaguá on the coast of the state, indicates that at least 100 tons of fish (sardine, croaker and catfish) have turned up dead since last Thursday off the coast of Parana.

On Sunday, representatives from the Environmental Institute of Paraná (IAP), the Secretary of State for the Environment and Water Resources (SEMA), took samples to verify the reason for the deaths. O relatório será divulgado hoje. The report will be released today.

The president of the Federation of Fishermen's Colony of Parana, Edmir Manoel Ferreira, reports that between Paranaguá and Guaraqueçaba at least 2,800 fishermen depend on the daily seafood.

Only one community came to bury 15 tons. We are experiencing a very sad situation on the coast, "reports.

Might be typical. I remeber a massive alewive kill washing up on the east shores of Lake Michigan - not sure what the cause was back in the 60's, but don't remember a huge alarm over the event.

Not that we eat blackbirds (yet) but I'm wondering if *they* are trying to kill our food supply.

Maybe these are preliminary tests on wildlife to be later used on humans.

Anything s possible nowadays.

....or maybe the blackbirds were killed by a lightning strike.

But that wouldn’t be nearly so much fun, would it?

First thought that came to me, but Rev 8 isn't exactly ambiguous:

“6 Then the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared to sound them.

7 The first angel sounded his trumpet, and there came hail and fire mixed with blood, and it was hurled down on the earth. A third of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up.

8 The second angel sounded his trumpet, and something like a huge mountain, all ablaze, was thrown into the sea. A third of the sea turned into blood,

9 a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.”

Haven't seen hail and fire mixed with blood, a third of the earth burned up, a third of the trees burned up, all the green grass burned up, or a third of the sea turned into blood. So I'd have to say nope, this is just some freaky environmental thing. Unless, of course, there is a mistranslation. And didn't a good chunk of Israel just go up in smoke?

I also remember that. My parents used to take us kids to a rental cottage on Lake Huron back then, for summer vacation. (Back in those olden days, it was something like $50/week, and they were very nice little cottages, maybe 100 yards from shore). And I remember one summer, the alewives piled up on shore like cordwood. It stunk to high heaven.

IIRC the thought was that they were overpopulated, and had simply run out of food, so they died.

Not many years after that, the Coho and Chinook salmon were introduced, which produced a great sport fishery for the Great Lakes.

But then in the 90s (?) there was the massive die-off of the salmon population, because they ran out of alewives to eat.

In Brazil, it may be from a red tide, and no connection to the bird and fish kill up in the USA.

Wouldn't a lightning strike fry the birds?

Also wouldn't dead birds occurrances be as frequent as lightning strikes?

I thought that when lightning strikes, there's almost always physical "burn" evidence.

I'm not dismissing that this may be a "natural" occurance, it's just that, this is all too creepy. Kinda like when obama returned from Mexico (?) we were subjected to swine flu. There fore, we shouldn't leave any stone/theory unchecked.

Birds killed by lightening strikes???

So, maybe the fish were killed by earth quakes?

I swear....we are SO naive. People will believe anything so long as it doesn’t interfere with their comfort zone.

Man, I could not agree with you more on the Grateful Dead. I never saw why they were popular and “legendary”. The only song I even remotely like is “Touch of Grey” and that was released in the mid/late 80’s.

A few thoughts . . .

Has anything like the sudden death of many fish/birds, etc. occurred globally before, but no connection been established?

Could it be due to a natural phenomenon like say, unusually cold weather and/or water? Seems to me that the 2010 climate summit was held in Brazil and if I remember correctly, they were experiencing unseasonably cold weather.

The earth’s magnetic poles have been reversing for some years now and scientists are not sure what we can expect, if anything, to happen as a direct result of this natural and expected process.

The incidents so far may be coincidental, but unrelated.

I just don’t want to jump to conclusions. This really could be something that happens once in awhile in nature. We may never know the cause.
