Why Are Millions Of Fish Suddenly Dying

17 posts in this topic

Millions upon millions of fish are suddenly dying in mass death events all over the world, and nobody seems to know why it is happening. In many of the news reports that are linked to below, locals are quoted as saying that they have never seen anything like this before. So is there a connection between all of the fish deaths that are now occurring all over the planet? If there is a connection, is there anything that we can do to stop the fish die-off? Sadly, because the big mainstream news networks in the United States have been virtually silent about this phenomenon, most Americans have absolutely no idea that it is happening. Millions of fish are dying in mass death events every single month and most of the public is totally clueless.

Oxygen starvation caused by sudden changes in ocean current and hot water plumes are the most likely cause. Solve Climate change is what we can do about it.

Ok but the list also showed many fish farms and ponds experienced the same tho, so no ocean issues in ponds right?

Ponds life is more prone to asphyxiation than open waters. This is because they tend to heat up quicker in heatwaves which lowers the solubility of oxygen in the water.

Most closed bodies of water are subject to nutrient enrichment (mainly through sewage and slurry wastes) and this causes algal blooms. Alga produces a super abundance of oxygen in the daytime but most is lost to the atmosphere because of the low solubility of oxygen in warm water. At night all the alga stops photosynthesising and starts respiring which depletes oxygen and boosts dissolved Carbon dioxide. This diurnal nigh-day cycling of oxygen-CO2 is both highly stressful to animals and can lead to total oxygen starvation at the peak of the night time cycle.

Another factor is oil spills - a single gallon of diesel can be enough to cover the surface of a small lake causing total oxygen starvation underneath.

According to the Maryland Department of the Environment, the latest Chesapeake kill was probably due to COLD WATER.

Note, source is "mainstream" media.

You guys need to learn to be a bit more skeptical about these things. Especially when, as in this case, the first couple pages that come up when you Google "millions of fish dying" are all from questionable and conspiracy sites. Fish kills happen all of the time all over the world - always have and always will - for a multitude of reasons. Some are caused by man, but many are completely natural.

Very interesting Seeder.

First of all I do not claim to know the answer. I have heard anecdotal stories about this over the years but I guess the bee issue which is equally puzzling has occupied my thoughts more.

My gut feel is that there is a connection with polarity change of the earth's magnetic field which scientists seem to agree has happened before and is happening again.

How his impacts on fish is not clear to me and it would clearly need more research.

Brutha I am on the fence with climate change. I lean toward the problem being serious enough that some action needs to be taken but the stumbling block for me is that those who are pushing this cause seem to discount the effects that non-western economies are having. As with all things political, the issue is reduced to raising money forcibly and by controlling behaviors. There is no world body that can do this right now. If the US and all other western economies took the hit, India and China alone would remain standing and they would STILL be causing the damage that climate change protesters are worrying about. A "carbon tax" has to be the most remarkable invention of this century. Human beings are capable of real flights of fancy and that is fine UNTIL it enslaves people. We as a species are addicted to ease and comfort and fossil fuels provide both. Unless we ALL recognize and resolve to solve this issue then piecemeal solutions are not going to do any long term good.

I agree - although I am a believer in climate change.

My issue is that all of the "solutions" seem to come right out of the Far Left/Communist/Socialist/Anti-West/Anti-Capitalist playbook while some of the biggest "polluters" on the planet get a pass.

I recall getting railed on by a liberal "friend" of mine for using disposable diapers when my first daughter was born. She was telling me what a terrible person I was, how horrible the diapers were for the planet, etc. I said something to the effect of, "No worries. It's all good. I planted three trees and switched all of my light bulbs over to CFLs to offset my carbon footprint. She was speechless after that.

Simple example, but it illustrates the absurdity of the whole debate if you ask me.

Well in BC, we're having another dismally low Sockeye run... the Fraser is too warm so something like only 30-40 % of the sockeye are reaching the spawning grounds... :/ And its another Sockeye year down the drain. That being said Pinks seem to be having a banner year...moreso then most odd years :)

Climate change has been around as long as the earth has. It's part of its life cycle.

I bet the 300 tonnes of contaminated Fukushima water that goes into the ocean isn't helping.. though I wouldn't really know... just saying.

The Indian River Lagoon, upon which I live, is now experiencing on its northern end the death of all the seagrasses that grow, about 60 miles of the lagoon. The scientists are not certain of the cause, but the future of young fish who grow there is very uncertain.

Climate change or the influence of humans? Nobody knows yet. Periodic fish die-offs have happened for years, though usually localized.

What do you mean by "India River"? it makes no sense

Apologies, I have just found it in Florida....

Biologist: Pacific herring in Canada bleeding from eyeballs, faces, fins, tails — I’ve never seen fish looking this bad — All 100 examined were bloody — Officials informed of hemorrhaging soon after 3/11 — Gov’t ignoring problem (PHOTO)

The Globe and Mail, Aug 13, 2013 (Emphasis Added): Independent fisheries scientist Alexandra Morton is raising concerns about a disease she says is spreading through Pacific herring causing fish to hemorrhage. [...] “Two days ago I did a beach seine on Malcolm Island [near Port McNeill on northern Vancouver Island] and I got approximately 100 of these little herring and they were not only bleeding from their fins, but their bellies, their chins, their eyeballs. [...] “It was 100 per cent … I couldn’t find any that weren’t bleeding to some degree. And they were schooling with young sockeye [salmon]”

I recently ate some fish and chips, and the fish had an odd metallic taste.

I anxiously await my superpowers, which I guess that makes me an optimist.

I'm sure there are various reasons for it. What those are, I couldn't tell you.

I think the problem is that we do not want to put undue pressue on developing countries as none were put on us (US, England, france, germany ...you get the picture) when we were developing and creating this problem. Now, I don't know who agrees with me, but China is pretty well developed now and can take on some of the burden. They have a problem of too many people, but who doesn't have some problem. India is not at that point yet IMO. I agree no worldly body can enforce environmental standards, but we can do what takes for us without always looking to others to see what they are doing and instead have hope that others will follow.
