Thousands Of Fish Dead In Spruce Creek.... (Florida)
http://www.wftv.com/news/26367953/detail.html ^ | Jan 4th, 2011

VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. -- Thousands of dead fish are floating in Volusia County Tuesday. They were all in Spruce Creek in Port Orange. The fish kill is unusual, according to people who live along the creek, because it's warm.

It's been a week since there were freezing temperatures, but there are fish lining the banks. Some said it's the worst kill they've ever seen; thousands of fish lined the twists and turns of Spruce Creek.

The sheer number of fish and the smell were both overwhelming.

"It was fun last night trying to sleep with the smell going on," said resident Sunny Morningstar.

Buzzards and pelicans flocked to the site Tuesday and swarmed above the water. They filled trees and private boat docks and waited at the water's edge for an easy meal.

Kayakers on the creek told WFTV, that during their five-hour paddle, they'd seen fish around every bend and it appeared to be one of the most extensive kills they had seen.

Residents told WFTV the fish kill is big enough that it's attracting brown and white pelicans from the beach, which are birds they rarely see this far inland.

MORE DEAD FISH IN BALTIMORE...

‘Very large’ fish kill reported in bay
Cold believed cause for 2 million dead spot, croakers

State officials say they are investigating a “very large” fish kill in the Chesapeake Bay, but suspect cold temperatures killed them, rather than any water-quality problems.

An estimated 2 million fish have been reported dead from the Bay Bridge south to Tangier Sound, according to the Maryland Department of the Environment, which investigates fish kills. The dead fish are primarily adult spot, with some juvenile croakers.

Fallout from the untested chemicals they spewed into the Gulf to support one of their investments? Signs of the coming apocalypse? Sudden shifts in the magnetic field of Earth? Who knows? But it is becoming more widespread.

When are the Feds going to let Americans know EXACTLY what is causing these kills. Are they waiting for Janet.

Everyone knows that bio attack is what they are expecting. How about the tuth for a change HLS.Instead of feeling up airline passengers, or was that the point to keep everyones attention on that?

Somebody knows. . .something. These are rather horrific events per numbers and clusterings. Hope they are not ‘copy cats’; and hope there is not ANY ‘cat’, for that matter; making these kills a brutal reality - and threat.

Google "mass bird deaths" and you can find many such incidents from earlier years... mostly bird flu.

The only thing "unusual" this time around is the media attention.

FROM THE NEW ZEALAND PENNISULA..

Charlotte Pearsall, whose family have lived at Little Bay for the last 30 years, said she had never seen anything like it.

‘’It was so surreal,’’ she said. ‘’It’s such an incredible waste - it could’ve fed the whole northern tip of the Coromandel.’’

People with binoculars said the snapper stretched as far as they could see and boaties reported ‘’a carpet of floating fish further out to sea all along the coast’’.

‘’We initially thought ‘woohoo a free feed’ but they had really cloudy eyes and you could see the birds had been at them. Some of them had no eyes,’’ Pearsall said.

This one is Canada...

Jan 4th, 2011

SARNIA, Ont. - Hundreds of dead fish that washed up on shore in the north end of the St. Clair River is a natural occurrence and not the result of a chemical spill, a government officials say.

Ministry of Natural Resources spokesperson Jolanta Kowalski confirmed that both the MNR and environment ministry were alerted to a massive die-off of gizzard shad fish late last week.

“We think it’s a natural occurrence,” Kowalski said. “They died off as a result of temperature shock because we had that really warm weekend ... and then it quickly cooled off again.”

Kowalski said such die-offs are not unusual but it typically happens in the spring.

Only one species was affected, further supporting the idea it was a natural occurrence, she said.

“There was nothing to indicate that it was man-made.”

Croaking while flying hundreds of feet up in the air might cause some blunt force trauma. I haven't heard of any toxicology reports being released just yet, so we'll have to wait and see.

And the fish?

Simply substitute "fish" for "bird" in the above instructions. I.E. Google "mass fish deaths".

It happens. Today we have the Internet... so stories like this can take on a whole life of their own.

I can only tell you what I read, since I'm not there doing the necropsies.

http://www.ktsm.com/arkansas/days-after-arkansas-louisiana-reports-hundreds-of-birds-falling-dead-from-sky

Autopsies conducted on 17 birds revealed the birds died due to multiple blunt trauma to their vital organs. Poison has been ruled out, and state biologists believe stress or weather might have played a vital role.

This doesn't really say that avian flu has been ruled out, but it's not mentioned. In another article I read:

Health officials have said that there was no sign of disease in the birds, but test results won't be in for at least a week.

That article describes what a chicken looks like in necropsy if it had bird flu and what these birds looked like. You would have to read the details and decide, but the health officials said they saw no sign of it. That's all I can tell you, I'm not an expert. http://www.postchronicle.com/news/original/article_212341561.shtml
