Dead herring washing up on shore in Nova Scotia

The National Post is reporting that "Tens of thousands of dead herring keep washing ashore along Nova Scotia’s western coastline, a mystery for biologists trying to figure out what is killing the small, silvery fish. Craik said the fish could be succumbing to a virus, some form of pollution, parasites or a poisonous algae bloom — but lab tests have yet to determine what is going on."

  1. when little fish die in mass, larger fish will starve. This is not a good thing. lets hope they figure this out.
