I wonder if the causes are the same ones as for beached whales (of which there are several possible ones)? 

Hope none of the fish went to waste!

McDonald's scooped them all up and are going to make a new Artisan fish sandwich out of them.

Second time in a month, huh? I hope they can figure out what's happening.

The last time we had that problem it was proved to be a nearby Naval exercise. The sonar confused them. It took years and years to get the Navy to admit they were the cause.

The mystery of why hundreds of thousands of fish were found washed up on a Cornish beach over the weekend has been solved: they were dumped by a fishing vessel that caught too many sardines in shallow water.

I have no words ... that is beyond mind boggling with the stupidity ... I hope they get the shipping vessel impounded and sunk to make artificial corals and a fish sanctuary ...

The sooner Britain leaves the EU and stops it from dumping fish in our waters (the EU has often overfished and then dumped tons of dead ones back into the sea) and sending Spanish and Irish and French trawlers into British fishing waters - the richest fishing waters in Europe - to steal our fish, the better.

Trawling hasn't helped anyone, quotas haven't helped anyone...because it doesn't do any good to throw fish back if they're already dead. The fact is that there aren't rich fishing waters anymore. And it's only gonna get worse. The environment is ******, and this is just the tip of the iceberg. The resource wars have begun, and everyone is becoming insular.
