Unexplained fish kill mystery solved
Clean up of thousands of slimy, reeking sardines need to be cleaned out of King Harbor Marina in Southern California after a massive previously unexplained fish die-off.

The reason the fish gathered in the marina will remain a mystery, but the reason for their death is not. The fish died due to suffocation – the fish had crowded toward the back of the marina and used all the oxygen in the water.

At least 85 tons of fish will be removed and will be sent to a composting center where they will be buried until they are reincarnated as compost in 90 – 120 days. The waste hauling company is considering sell the fish-based fertilizer to farms. Some local fishermen are doing their own recycling of the dead sardines by freezing the fish and later using them as bait.

Maryland Falls Victim to Harmful Invasive Species - Invasive species are problematic because they can aggressively establish themselves very quickly after introduction, and often end up in direct competition with native species. Because of this, invasive species can quickly and dramatically alter natural habitats and displace native flora and fauna species. In the U.S. alone, 45 percent of species that are listed as rare, threatened or endangered are designated into this category in part due to invasive species.
