A collection of recent stories reporting the continued die off of fish and other ocean life:

Another mass die-off: Millions of fish found dead in China

(NaturalNews) Two days before the massive 9.0+ magnitude earthquake struck off the coast of Japan, millions of dead fish were found mysteriously blanketing waters at King Harbor Marina in Redondo Beach, Calif. And in a similar turn of events, millions of dead fish were recently discovered floating in China’s Minjiang River — just a coincidence, or a sign of worse things to come? What’s on Xiamen, a Chinese news source, reports that countless millions of dead fish were found floating on a large portion of the Minjiang River stretching from Huangtian in Gutian County, to Shuikou, an area that represents the largest grass carp breeding region in China’s Fujian Province. As many as nine million fish have reportedly died in Huangtian alone, thus far. “All the fish in Huangtian floated onto the river on August 27, 28 and 29,” said Wei Maoci to Chinese reporters. Maoci, who owns his own fish farm, was the first of many farmers to experience massive and unexplained fish deaths and he reportedly lost the equivalent of roughly $470,000 worth of fish as a result. – Natural News.com

Fish kills reported in Neuse River in wake of Irene

Staff members from both the N.C. Division of Water Quality and state Wildlife Resources Commission agencies report that oxygen levels in the rivers have steadily decreased each day since the hurricane passed on Aug. 27. As the oxygen levels decrease, staff have seen stressed fish gasping for oxygen and others dying. – ENC Today

NC officials: Avoid eating, touching dead fish

NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) – Widespread fish kills in eastern North Carolina are an expected impact from Hurricane Irene, and officials with the State Division of Public Health warn residents to avoid eating or touching the dead fish. Scientists estimate that hundreds of fish have turned up dead in rivers, including the Northeast Cape Fear River, since Irene made landfall August 27. “We came out here to check out the water and there was dead fish everywhere,” said fisherman Dan Siuta. “There’s dead catfish floating around.” – WECT

Overwhelmed by putrid fish smell

PAM and Peter Clarke were hoping to enjoy the recent balmy weather in the backyard of their Ballina home until they opened their back doors and were overwhelmed by a horrible smell. The couple live in the North Lakes estate and their home backs onto a canal which, as it turns out, was the location of a significant fish kill last week. Mrs Clarke said council workers cleaned up hundreds of dead fish that were scattered in the lakes of the estate. However, they did not pick up all of them and some are now rotting in the canal behind their house. The result is a revolting stench that greets the Clarkes when they go to bask in the afternoon sun. – Northern Star

Biologists Set To Rescue Fish From Drying Texas Rivers

The Texas Parks & Wildlife has been talking about this for months, now. Back in July, the department put out a long, explanatory press release on what’s happening to wildlife as the drought deepens. One of the important things they note is that when water doesn’t fall from the sky, animals turn to spring-fed ponds, or water that comes from the earth. According to TPWD, animals have survived long droughts in the past, but our consumption of water is making droughts more severe. – NPR.com

Deep Lake Fish Kills Attributed to Oxygen, Water Temperature

Dead fish in Bull shoals, Norfolk and Beaver lakes in north Arkansas have resulted in questions and concerns from a number of Arkansans.  It is a natural and somewhat seasonal phenomenon, according to Ken Shirley, a veteran district fisheries biologist with the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission. The situation was complicated this year because of unusual and prolonged high levels on the lakes resulting from heavy spring rains. – KATV.com

Water monitored after dead fish spotted

County officials said Friday night they were testing the water at Boca Chica beach to determine whether to issue any type of warning after dead fish were found along the shore— possible victims of red tide. People with asthma or other respiratory problems can be particularly sensitive to red tide, and there were already reports of people reacting to something at the beach. Cameron County Commissioner Sofia C. Benavides, of Precinct 1, visited the shore Friday and reported that the water was not red. However, she said she experienced irritation to her throat, a common symptom of red tide. Willie Cupit, a Texas Parks and Wildlife Department coastal ecologist, said Friday morning he hadn’t received a report of the fish kill, but that it would be investigated. Cupit said Thursday that the presence of red tide in the Brownsville Ship Channel was confirmed. “We were kind of holding our breath. It’s going to spread. It’s just kind of a waiting game,” he said Friday. “You can’t really pre-dict where it’s going to go.” – The Brownsville Herald

Red Tide Killing Abalone off California

The sudden death of thousands of red abalone and other invertebrates along the Sonoma County Coast over the past few weeks has prompted state wildlife officials to propose an indefinite ban on abalone fishing while biologists search for a cause. The California Fish and Game Commission passed an emergency order Thursday to close the only abalone fishery in the state after continued reports of dead mollusks along the shoreline and in the water in Bodega Bay, Russian Gulch, Fort Ross, Timber Cove and Salt Point State Park. California Department of Fish and Game officials said the mass die-off was caused by an unusual and virulent red tide. “It is an unprecedented event,” said Ian Taniguchi, the senior marine biologist for fish and game. “It’s definitely going to affect the fishery. It is such a significant event that it may change how we manage the overall abalone fishery in the future.” – SF Gate

Tar balls, dead marine life raise more questions about oil in the gulf

Though BP has continued to deny that any of its gulf wells are leaking oil, a large-scale oil slick reported in the area is worrying Gulf Coast watchdogs. Concerns abound that the oil could spell trouble for area fisheries, especially since reports of dead dolphins have persisted in recent days. Since Tropical Storm Lee recently made landfall in the Gulf Coast region, tar balls have started washing up on the shores of Louisiana all the way to Florida. Dramatic videos published last week on the site Black Oil, Red Blood shows that oil is indeed still a problem. Whether that is the result of a new leak or a remnant of last year’s Deepwater Horizon spill remains a mystery. (Photos of a dolphin skeleton that washed up in Biloxi, Miss., are also shown.) According to the site, these images were taken “during the past few weeks and months, at a time when BP has engaged in an aggressive, multi-million dollar advertising campaign which proclaims to the country that Gulf beaches are clean, safe, and open for business.” – The Florida Independant

Isaiah 50:2 “Why was no one there when I came? Why was there no one to answer when I called? Is My hand too short to redeem? Or do I have no power to deliver? Look, I dry up the sea by My rebuke; I turn the rivers into a wilderness; their fish rot because of lack of water and die of thirst.”

The seas will steam up and much water will evaporate up into the atmosphere as Yahweh reforms the canopy around this planet. With that action, many fish and other sea creatures will perish. Mankind will make a vain effort to harvest dying fish populations to fish farms and hatcheries, but all will fail in salvaging what must perish.

Piles of dead fish have once again started surfacing along the Rio Grande, New Mexico – 1st Aug 2011

August 2, 2011 Comments off

Something killed a lot of fish in the Rio Grande River overnight Sunday and New Mexico Game and Fish officers believe it had to do with heavy rain and forest fires upstream.

Carp, catfish and white suckers were found dead as doornails in the Rio Grande Monday morning when Mercy Brandenburg and her husband took the dogs for a walk at the river’s edge in Rio Rancho.

“We started looking in the river and pretty much everywhere you see you can see dead fish lying around. We also walked down the river south and same situation…same scenario…fish everywhere,” Brandenburg explained.

Game and Fish officials were testing the river water’s acidity along with the oxygen level Monday. The levels were found normal, but officials said they might not have been normal upriver Sunday night.

A Jemez Mountains stream was seen black as asphalt and loaded with ash from the Las Conchas fire. The stream feeds straight into the Rio Grande.

Game and Fish officials said there are many more streams in the same condition in the Jemez.

“A lot of things, whether it be ash or whatever, got washed into the river very quickly and probably in a certain spot…it kind of… it depleted the oxygen so much that the fish couldn’t survive,” said New Mexico Game and Fish official Rick Castel.

Officials said they see this kind of fish kill pretty frequently, but usually in lakes and not in a flowing river. – KOB.com

Father is letting things get worse as far as Mankind goes, but will pull the Earth back from the brink of destruction; the oceans are polluted and all ecology is dying; it will be replenished by Christ Jesus and Father’s life-giving force. But before that happens, Mankind will certainly look bleakly at what they think is the end of not only Planet Earth, but their own. The latter they got right, but not so for the Earth.

The last Armageddon, everything in the sea was spared that did not breath like we do, but this time, everything in the seas are going to either wash ashore or create the largest cesspool of dead carcasses in the history of creation; thanks to drilling for oil and the dumping of toxic waste including nerve gas, the seas require a miracle to bring future life back to them; and just as it occurred back in Noah’s post-flood era, Yahweh’s angels replanted and brought back much of what was lost at that global flood; this time the seas themselves will not be spared; great whales and every sort of sea life will soon be floating on the oceans with the stench rising to the heavens; people will be committing suicide in mass when they realize that this planet is beyond Mankind’s help; no science they have developed can halt nor rectify what is just ahead.

Texas Lake Turns Blood-Red

August 2, 2011 Comments off

A Texas lake that turned blood-red this summer may not be a sign of the End Times, but probably is the end of a popular fishing and recreation spot.

A drought has left the OC Fisher Reservoir in San Angelo State Park in West Texas almost entirely dry. The water that is left is stagnant, full of dead fish — and a deep, opaque red.

The color has some apocalypse believers suggesting that OC Fisher is an early sign of the end of the world, but Texas Parks and Wildlife Inland Fisheries officials say the bloody look is the result of Chromatiaceae bacteria, which thrive in oxygen-deprived water.

“It’s just heartbreaking,” said Charles Cruz, a fish and wildlife technician with Texas Parks and Wildlife in San Angelo, Tex.

Blood red reservoir

Texas is experiencing major drought this summer, with 75 percent of the state’s area in an “exceptional” drought, the highest level, according to the National Drought Mitigation Center (NDMC). The state had hoped for some relief from Tropical Storm Don last week, but the system fizzled and brought only an inch or two of rain to areas near the coast.

The drought has taken its toll on a number of reservoirs in West Texas, Cruz told LiveScience. OC Fisher has never been completely full, Cruz said, but it was stocked with catfish, bass, sunfish and other popular targets for fishermen.

“We surveyed the lake, I believe it was last year, and we had a pretty good fish population out there,” Cruz said. “It was pretty sickening going out there, watching lake levels just drop and drop and drop and seeing these nice trophy-sized bass just floating dead.”

End times predictions

As of last week, all that remained of the lake was a small pond a few feet deep, Cruz said. There were thousands of dead fish, he said, but no sign of life. – MSNBC.com

Indonesia – Bali Post, Nusa Bali and Beritabali.com are all reporting that a species of purple and poisonous jellyfish have invaded the waters off Bali’s western beaches near Tabanan in an area stretching from the Tanah Lot Temple, to the Kediri district, Yeh Gangga and Kerambitan. The jellyfish, said to “number in the millions,” are capable of dispensing a potent venom capable, in some instances, of killing human victims.

Georgia – A 64-year-old man died from anthrax in Georgia, the Tbilisi Infectious Diseases Hospital told Trend. He became infected when cutting the carcass of an animal at his home in the Tetritskaro region (Kakheti, eastern Georgia). He turned to the local hospital only six days after, when he was urgently transferred to Tbilisi. Doctors were unable to save his life in time.

China – Dead fish offshore from Changdao county in Shandong province has no relation to the oil leak of Penglai 19-3 oilfield in Bohai Bay, despite its close proximity to the site, according to the latest test results released by the State Oceanic Administration and the Ministry of Agriculture, the Beijing Times reported on Monday.

Canada – Another patient linked to the C. difficile outbreak in Ontario’s Niagara Region has died. An outbreak of C. difficile has claimed lives at three hospitals in Ontario’s Niagara Region in the past two weeks. “A 10th patient related to the C. difficile outbreak at the St. Catharines General died earlier this morning,” Dr. Joanna Hope, interim chief of staff for the Niagara Health System, said in a release Monday.

Bangladesh – Thirty-nine people have been found infected with anthrax in Gangni upazila of Meherpur district. Of the infected, 17 are undergoing treatment at the Gangni Upazila Health Complex while the remaining have already received treatment. Resident physician of the health complex Dr Anwarul Islam told bdnews24.com on Saturday that an ailing cow was slaughtered at Kallyanpur village of the upazila on July 5 and those who processed the meat and consumed it contracted the infection.

Philippines – A mysterious infection in Zamboanga del Norte has left 4 people dead and 16 others hospitalized. The hospitalized victims, all natives of Barangay Mantebo, Sibuco town in Zamboanga del Norte, complained of pain and numbness in the lower extremities. One of the patients Pantera Nadjal said it was in May this year when she started feeling numbness and a tingling sensation in her feet and legs. Fifteen other villagers experienced the same and are now at the Zamboanga City Medical Center (ZCMC).

Canada – Blue-green algae (cyanobacteria) has been found in McFarlane Lake, according to a press release from the Sudbury and District Health Unit. Samples taken from McFarlane Lake contained a species of cyanobacteria that can produce toxins. “Water contaminated with blue-green algal blooms has an unsightly pea soup appearance and foul smell,” Allan McDougall, an environmental support officer with the health unit, said in the press release.

Ukraine – Poor-quality food prepared at Ukrainian summer camps left 84 Russian children vacationing there ill, health officials said Wednesday. The mass food poisoning took place at two youth resorts near the port city Sevastopol, in the Black Sea peninsula Crimea. Most of the victims were aged from 8 to 16 and had travelled to the camps from the Russian cities Moscow, Yekaterinburg, and Orekhovo-Zuevo.

Philippines – At least 27 villagers have been hospitalized in General Nakar, Quezon, due to typhoid fever. According to local health officials, drinking contaminated water could have been behind the sudden increase in typhoid fever cases in Barangay Anoling. The health officials said that 27 residents of Barangay Anoling have been rushed to the C.M. Rector hospital in nearby Infanta town and General Nakar Municipal Health Center since June 31.

USA – A 46-year-old man attacked by a swarm of bees Friday night at a west-side park has died from the stings, an official said Tuesday. Oscar Navarro was stung hundreds of times while walking near the Steve Daru Clubhouse of the Boys & Girls Clubs at 1375 N. El Rio Drive, which is in Joaquin Murrieta Park. An autopsy Tuesday revealed that Navarro died from “mass envenomation”, which means venom from the bee stings, said Dr. Gregory Hess, Pima County chief medical examiner.

USA – Swimmers at Galveston beaches are being warned to look out for jellyfish after the island’s beach patrol reported 65 stings yesterday. The Galveston Daily News reports that the jellyfish arrival is tied to the ocean’s current and wind pattern. Officials say that although dozens of stings were reported yesterday, the number is not high enough to post a blue-flag jellyfish warning.

Ghana – A swarm of bees attacked six schoolchildren of the Mizpah International School at Tesano Club in Accra Friday (8th July 2011). The incident occurred about 3:30p.m. when the children from the neighbouring Apenkwa Government School threw stones into the hive harbouring the bees in a house in the vicinity. Provoked by the action of the children, the bees came out of their hive stinging anyone they came across.

China – Green algae about the size of a football pitch was seen 12 nautical miles off Qingdao, a port city in east China’s Shandong Province, local maritime police said Saturday. The large expanse of green algae, or enteromorpha prolifera, was first detected on May 28 off the east coast and expanded from 175 square kilometers on Thursday to 180 square kilometers on Friday, according to the North China Sea Branch (NCSB) of the State Oceanic Administration.

New Zealand – Sixteen people have contracted measles following the latest outbreak in Auckland, with two hospitalised as a result. The outbreak of the potentially deadly illness is the second in Auckland so far this year, though officials say the cases are all linked to a single case and are confident they have it under control. Quarantines have been imposed on around 140 students from at least two schools.

Hundreds of fish turn up dead in south Georgia

July 1, 2011 Comments off

ALBANY, Ga. (AP) – Drought conditions are being blamed for the deaths of hundreds of fish at Radium Springs in south Georgia.

Authorities say the creek that normally connects Radium Springs to the Flint River is dry, and the water level is so low that fish don’t have enough oxygen to survive.

WALB-TV reports that the natural spring is usually 24 feet deep. Authorities say levels have dropped at least four feet, and all the fish have been pushed into one small area.

Department of Natural Resources Fisheries Supervisor Rob Weller says hundreds of fish have died, including large mouth bass, blue gill and gar.

From 2008: Mankind has polluted the earth and helped to raise the temperature that contributes to the ice melt, but look in the coming months to the sun as Father’s Seraphs cause the sun to radiate large amounts of solar heat. The process has been going on for some time now, but it will be escalated as Father brings more heat and drought to parts of this world, and floods and tornadoes, with earthquakes opening voids and swallowing land masses as they slide off into the openings. The seas will heat to a temperature that will cause a chain reaction of more turbulence and higher waves than have ever been witnessed since this planet became inhabited by mankind.

Mass fish deaths in Moscow

A fishy case has washed up at the door of Moscow’s prosecutors after dead perches and roaches were spotted by city dwellers in the Yauza river in eastern Moscow.

Witnesses claim they could smell something strong and that a large dark mark appeared on the water surface.

Results of water tests are to be announced in three days, according to officials, and they claim the incident could have been caused by various things.

Low Oxygen to Blame for Delco Fish Deaths

The Pennyslvania Department of Environmental Protections confirms that it was low levels of oxygen in Ridley Park Lake that killed hundreds of fish two weekends ago.

According to Ridley Park Police Chief Tom Byrne, authorities were notified of the dead fish around 8:15 p.m. on Saturday, June 11.

Water samples were tested initially, but those samples showed no sign of a problem — neither pesticides nor other harmful contaminants.

A second set of samples sent to the lab revealed low levels of oxygen in the water — too low to keep the fish alive, according to the DEP.

A fish-death mystery

SPOFFORD — There’s a mystery brewing on Spofford Lake, where hundreds of fish have turned up dead over the past two weeks.

Officials have no leads on the potential cause of the deaths, spanning several species of fish that have been washing up on the lake’s shores since at least June 16, officials said Monday.

“This time of year, there’s typically nothing to be concerned about,” said Gabriel Gries, a fisheries biologist for N.H. Fish and Game in Keene.

It’s actually quite common, Gries said, to find 20, 30, even 50 dead fish washing up this time of year due to natural causes.

“The fish are stressed from spawning; they’re guarding their eggs; making nests,” he said. “Then all of a sudden there’s three or four days of really hot weather, which raises the temperature of the water, and the already stressed fish expire.”

But this year, there are a few unusual factors involved, Gries said.

“The interesting thing here is that it’s not one or two species,” he said. “We’ve found yellow perch, bluegills, northern pike, large and small mouth bass, and bullhead catfish.”

Thousands of fish found dead at Woodlands’ pond

Residents whose homes encircle Shadowpoint Pond in The Woodlands awoke Father’s Day morning to a surprise: hundreds of dead fish lined the shore of the neighboring pond.

“There have been a couple of times where there’ve been some dead fish when they’ve treated algae but it’s never been this bad,” said Erin Hayes, a senior at College Park High School, whose family has lived in the surrounding neighborhood for 20 years.

“In the morning we saw this white stuff floating on the lake but we really couldn’t tell what it was…When we got closer we noticed it smelled like dead fish,” Hayes said. “There were also a ton of vultures circling the lake.”

As many as 3,000 fish of various species were killed overnight, likely a result of a lack of oxygen, said Chris Nunes, Director of The Woodlands Township Parks and Recreation. Nunes said the fish were found that Sunday afternoon, and the lake was cleaned Monday.

Dead Fish in Buffalo Pound

Biologists are trying to get to the bottom of a mystery at Buffalo Pound. Thousands of fish have been found floating on the surface of the lake.

The Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation has been investigating and Fisheries Biologist Adam Matichuk did some initial testing last week, thinking low oxygen levels in the lake caused the fish to die. But that wasn’t the case and now they’re looking at other possible causes. “Perhaps a toxin, herbicide or pesticide or something completely different because it could be a disease as well.”

Some specimens have been sent to Saskatoon for further testing. Matichuk doesn’t think there is a risk to anyone using the lake, including those who eat fish caught in the lake.

New fish deaths sighted in Taal Lake

BATANGAS CITY—Just days after authorities declared that fish from Taal Lake were already safe to eat following a massive fishkill that spawned an industry nightmare, hundreds of dead “bangus” (milkfish) were seen floating anew off three lakeside villages in Batangas on Monday, police said.

SPO3 Larry Aala, team leader of the Philippine National Police Maritime Group in Batangas, said his men estimated the volume of the latest fish deaths at two tons off Barangay Sampaloc in Talisay town and two tons off Barangays Balakilong and Birinayan in Laurel town.

“We counted only a few sacks full of affected fish this time,” Aala said, comparing it to the hundreds of tons of fish that had died the previous weeks and buried for safety reasons.

Philippines struggles under mountain of dead fish

May 30, 2011 Comments off

MANILA — Several lakeside towns in the Philippines on Monday were struggling to cope with mountains of rotting fish that were killed by a sudden drop in water temperatures at the weekend.

The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources said more than 750 tonnes of fish had died since Friday in Taal Lake near Manila, hitting several towns whose economies are heavily reliant on the fishing industry.

Scientists said the onset of the rainy season led to a sharp drop in water temperatures that depleted oxygen levels in the lake.

Most of those killed were milk fish and tilapia being commercially bred in cages along the lake’s shores.

“There are just so many dead fish,” said Zenaida Mendoza, mayor of Talisay, one of the worst affected towns.

“Fishermen are hauling them manually using their boats, and bringing them ashore. But the rotting smell is overpowering and could pose a health risk.”

She said sanitation and health officials were working flat out to dispose of the dead fish, although many remained exposed to the open air due to a lack of suitable sites to bury the hundreds of tonnes of carcasses.

Volcanologists said the incident was not related to recent activity of Taal Volcano, which lies in the middle of the lake and has been rumbling for over a month and is among the deadliest of the country’s 23 active volcanoes.

Do not believe the falsehoods of Man-Made religious sects out there who preach that you must be baptized in order to receive salvation and that Once Saved is Always Saved or the falsehood of the Trinity which denies Christ of his true glory. They do not represent truth. The lying false shepherds out there who have led people away from the truth and into darkness will be dealt with personally and according to God’s will.

DNR investigating large fish kill

DU BAY, Wis. (WSAU) – A fish virus has caused a large kill on Lake DuBay and the Stevens Point flowage that is under investigation by the state Department of Natural Resources.

The DNR first learned of the fish kill on Lake DuBay on April 25.  They determined that a virus primarily affecting 3-year-old black crappie caused the kill.  The kill on DuBay has been widespread and has covered many areas of the water with concentrations of dead fish along Seagull Drive and areas to the south.

Lakeside NY town hauls away thousands of dead fish

MORIAH, N.Y. — Crews are cleaning up the thousands of dead fish that have washed up along Lake Champlain’s New York shoreline, including a stretch where public campgrounds and beaches are being prepared for opening this spring.

Lakeside residents in Vermont began reporting thousands of dead alewives showing up along the shore earlier this month. Vermont fisheries biologists say alewives, a species not native to the lake, are sensitive to frigid temperatures and likely died off during the winter. Source

Dead fish wash ashore in East Lagoon

DeKALB | The smell of dead fish has recently filled the air by the East Lagoon with many washed up on shore.

Mike Saari, director of the NIU physical plant, said the main cause of this is when a body of water, such as the lagoon, thaws out during the spring. This temperature change makes the water turbulent, moving the water from colder to warmer.

“The warm water comes to the surface and the cold water is almost like a temperature inversion,” Saari said. “That action stirs up a lot of organic material at the bottom of the lagoon and you get concentrations of algae, which makes the oxygen in the water.” Source

Grim haul on the bay: 3 tons of dead fish

As the saying goes, if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.

A team from the Department of Natural Resources headed out into the Chesapeake Bay on Tuesday to finish a job it first tried on Monday – hauling in hundreds of yards of illegal fish nets bursting with dead, rotting rockfish.

It took four hours for the crew of the M/V A.V. Sandusky to haul in 1,400 yards of gill nets submerged in the bay between Tilghman Island and North Beach.

Fish die-off hits Lake Champlain

Residents of the Champlain Islands and the lakeshore near St. Albans have reported large numbers of dead alewives washing up on the shoreline.

“It’s pretty disgusting. They are coating the shoreline, and the water’s so high the waves wash the fish up into the yard,” said Joy Kipp, who lives on the Maquam Shore in St. Albans.

The fish — recent nonnative invaders of Lake Champlain — are sensitive to cold water. The thousands of dead alewives floating in the water and washing up on shore likely died during the winter, state fisheries biologist Bernie Pientka said.

“We’ve gotten numerous calls in the last week and a half,” he said. “Whichever way the wind blows, they wash up on that shore. The whole length of the (Sandbar) causeway was a strip of dead fish.” Source

‘Stench of dead fish has affected business’

PANAJI: The stench from dead fish on the Calangute-Candolim beach stretch affected business, say beach shack owners, who now heave a sigh of relief that the mess has been cleared up.

The Calangute-Candolim beach stretch wore a cleaner look on Saturday. However, tar balls began to surface on the same stretch by late evening.

Several theories had been put forward, including of fishing boats offloading their catch into the sea. Tourism director Swapnil Naik said that he had instructed the beach cleaning contractor to deploy additional workers to clean the beach. The cleaning work began in the morning, and had to be discontinued during the noon and the entire area was cleared of the fish by 3.30pm on Friday itself, he said. Source

Dead fish found in Ganga; officials suspect water poisoned

Kanpur, Apr 26 (PTI) A large number of dead fish were found floating in the Ganga at Nawabganj area near here and officials suspect that the river water was poisoned by some fish traders. According to the Pollution Control Board (PCB), the level of oxygen in the water was found to be adequate for fish to survive, raising suspicion that traders could have poisoned the fish so that they could be sold in the market. “We got reports yesterday that thousands of dead fish were floating in Ganga river near Durgapurva. When our team reached the spot, they found that the oxygen level of the water was 7-8 mg per litre, which is sufficient for fish to survive. It becomes difficult for them to survive if the level dips to 2-3 mg,” PCB Regional Officer Radheshyam said. The spot where the fish were found dead in large numbers does not have any inflow of effluents either from tanneries or from domestic users, he said. “Hence, there is no possibility of the fish dying due to pollution,” he added. The officer said water samples collected from the spot have been sent to IIT-Kanpur and Indian Taxological Research Centre, Lucknow, to check if poison was mixed in the water. “Only when we get reports from the laboratory, we will be able to draw a conclusion as to how the fish died,” the official said.

Other newer disasters and events are in the minds of many, but it’s important to continue to seek out and continue to SEE the SIGNS.


More Dead Sealife Continues to Plague U.S. Beaches

April 3, 2011 2 comments

ALABAMA— Months after the hundreds of birds fell dead from the sky and after thousands of dead fish, crabs, sardines, dolphins, and whales washed ashore worldwide, more dead fish washed ashore in Alabama, and a dead whale washed ashore in Virginia.

There’s still no cause for the hundreds of dead fish that were found dead along the gulf shores over the weekend. They were also found along the gulf state pier Saturday morning. Park officials said it was unusual to see spade fish in that area this early in the year. The dead sigh spanned about three miles of shoreline.

The Department of Wildlife and Fisheries will take the fish in for testing.

In Sandbridge, VA, the carcass of a Sei whale was found Sunday morning. The whale measured 35 to 40 feet long. Staffers from the Virginia Beach Aquarium were called to the site so that it could be secured and would not wash back into the ocean.

Mankind cannot deter that fact, nor can they clean up the seas of the billions upon billions of dead sea life that will eventually stagnate the life-sustaining waters of this once beautiful gem formed and nurtured to life by our Mother and Her Son Christ Jesus – the former Michael. Pestilence from the decaying dead sea life will eventually spread to all living on the earth. The beginning of the torment meted out will come in progressive stages as the chain reaction of those that depend on and feed upon life in the sea will be starved and begin to also perish, causing further desecration of this planet and bringing more calamity upon those survivors of mankind as Yahweh moves toward a climax of Satan’s present empire.

Hundreds of dead starfish wash up on Talybont beach, UK

March 28, 2011 Comments off

Several hundred dead starfish have been found washed up on a north Wales beach and it comes following the discovery at Talybont, between Harlech and Barmouth in Gwynedd. Authorities reveal that its common for starfish to be washed ashore during spring tides but it was not clear why they had migrated so far up the shoreline.

Common starfish – found around the UK coast – feed on mussels and other crustaceans and while there is no clear reason why the starfish migrated so far along the coast he felt one reason could be a shortage of food. The starfish bodies are not harmful and will probably be eaten by seagulls.

The unbalanced rains of toxins will cause rivers to dry up as droughts become the norm, and this will culminate into war; world domination for what dwindling resources are left intact.

Revelation 16:12-14 “The Sixth Bowl
The sixth poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up to prepare the way for the kings from the east. Then I saw three unclean spirits like frogs [coming] from the dragon’s mouth, from the beast’s mouth, and from the mouth of the false prophet. For they are spirits of demons performing signs, who travel to the kings of the whole world to assemble them for the battle of the great day of God, the Almighty.”

Fresh Oil Continues to Wash Ashore in the Bayou

March 23, 2011 Comments off

Fresh Louisiana crude washed into the beaches and dock areas near Grand Isle over the weekend, creating a sickening sight for the residents of this oil battered region. The reddish brown crude and oily sheen lapped onto the sandy and rocky shores, while some people flocked to Grand Isle’s famous white beaches for spring break unaware of the oily assault nearby.

Grand Isle Mayor David Camardelle said the oil had hit Elmers island and Lafourch beaches near the main beach area of Grand Isle. He said the oil appeared to be about two miles offshore over the weekend  but then started coming ashore to the west of the island. “It reminded me of the first time we saw oil last summer, a brown reddish sheen.”

The Coast Guard says it is mobilizing workers to lay fresh boom in environmentally sensitive areas and arranging for additional cleanup crews to help as oil comes ashore.

(From 2010) When everything in the seas die, starting with the Gulf of Mexico, the ramification is this: The dead sea life from the sea alone, not counting the water fowls, will be so numerous as the dead float to the top of the ocean waters, and the stench of decaying oceanic remains, that it will be impossible to clear the ocean of the deadly brew that will start moving through the ocean currents to other areas of the earth’s oceans that surround this planet; that is what the demons were referring to about the “domino effect.” Even they are smart enough to know that the disruption of sea life is catastrophic; we are talking about the cessation of the lives of millions of fish and other sea borne life forms that will die and rot in the oceans of this planet; shipping goods will be disrupted because of the flotilla of carnage in the sea; as mankind tries to correct the growing catastrophe, they will cause a loss of many ships because things will get even further out of hand. The Gulf will represent the loss of the first third of deaths to sea life.

Revelation 8:8, 9 “The second angel blew his trumpet, and something like a great mountain ablaze with fire was hurled into the sea. So a third of the sea became blood, a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.”

26,000 fish die on Rhondda trout farm

March 16, 2011 Comments off

About 26,000 trout have been found dead at a fish farm in Rhondda.

South Wales Police are investigating a suspected poisoning incident that has killed thousands of fish at Blaenrhondda.

Upper Rhondda Angling Association says it believes the action at the trout farm was malicious.

The fishing club estimates it has lost 26,000 fish from fry to 1lb (0.5kg) trout.

Club members say the incident has wiped out two years worth of stock and threatens the association’s future.

One, Robert Langley, said it was “gut wrenching” to see so many dead fish.

“The club could die out. This was the future stock for two years, maybe more,” he said.

Fish from the trout farm are used to stock the club’s private fishing at Llyn Fawr.

The Environment Agency said it was also carrying out an investigation, but confirmed that the Rhondda Fawr river has not been affected by the incident.

Jeremiah 15:3 “I will ordain four kinds [of judgment] for them”—[this is] the LORD’s declaration—”the sword to kill, the dogs to drag away, and the birds of the sky and the wild animals of the land to devour and destroy.”

Justice SQUARED X 4. This also reveals that everything, including the animal kingdom is involved in this war that ravages throughout the creation. It also gives insight that just as our Mother can met out four kinds of Judgment, She can also PROVIDE for, or institute PROVISIONAL LAW that is set into motion for a specific purpose.

Fish die outside water treatment plant

March 13, 2011 Comments off

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Two state agencies are looking into what could have caused a massive fish die-off in the Rio Grande just outside of the Southside Water Reclamation Plant.

The inlet is a popular fishing spot about a half mile south of the Rio Bravo bridge.

“We thought it was going to be a good day (fishing) then we saw two float by. As soon they floated by there was just dead fish everywhere. They were floating by, one about every five seconds,” said Keith Sullins, who was fishing at the time when he started to see the dead fish. “There was just dead fish everywhere.”

Sullins pulled a few fish out and says he took a water sample.

The Albuquerque Bernalillo County Water Authority says it’s investigating, but a test at one in the afternoon showed the water was normal.

Luke 6:25 “Woe to you who are full now, because you will be hungry. Woe to you who are laughing now, because you will mourn and weep.”

Devastation brings hunger with the collapse of the fishing industry and ruination of the shorelines, and a culmination of other things that are going to shortly take place; this is the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle that swiftly fall into place as:

Isaiah 29:8 “It will be like a hungry one who dreams he is eating, then wakes and is still hungry; and like a thirsty one who dreams he is drinking, then wakes and is still thirsty, longing for water. So will be the multitude of all the nations who go to battle against Mount Zion.”

The plagues are caused by the dead sea creatures that have created the toxic brew. With the ever growing thirst for clean water to suffice the multitudes, and rivers that once supplied the dams to create power, as well as the water for nuclear power plants now becoming contaminated and not readily usable, the thing taken for granted – electrical current, will be disrupted worldwide; plunging cities and rural communities into darkness at night. And the painful diseases will continue to spread like wildfire:

Revelation 16:10, 11 “The Fifth Bowl
The fifth poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and his kingdom was plunged into darkness. People gnawed their tongues from pain and blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, yet they did not repent of their actions.”

The unbalanced rains of toxins will cause rivers to dry up as droughts become the norm, and this will culminate into war; world domination for what dwindling resources are left intact; in addition, this is prompted by three of Dawn’s demon commanders that travel to the leaders of this planet to compel them to wage war against other nations and warn them that they must also war against the LOZ.

Billions of dead fish invade Redondo’s King Harbor Marina

March 9, 2011 Comments off

Billions of dead sardines are blanketing the sea bottom and floating on the surface of the water this morning at King Harbor Marina in Redondo Beach, and officials are trying to figure out what happened.

Fire, police and public works officials are on the scene, at this point working to remove the fish – first thought to be anchovies – as quickly as possible.

“We need to get rid of them,” said Sgt. Phil Keenan of the Redondo Beach Police Department. “This is going to create a terrible pollution and public health issue if we don’t.”

The cause is so far a mystery, but the fish may have died due

to lack of oxygen, Keenan said. They are clustered around the north side of the harbor, the majority in Basins 1 and 2.

Peter Wallerstein of Marine Animal Rescue said his best guess is that perhaps the high winds last night forced the fish into a small area, where they ran out of oxygen.

“I’m sure we’ll see an increase of sea lions and seals in the Redondo Harbor,” he said.

Every living thing in the seas continue to slowly die.

Major die-off of fish along lakefront

February 19, 2011 Comments off

A bizarre scene is evolving on the Chicago lakefront, with Canada geese and mallard ducks gulping down dead or dying gizzard shad. A major die-off of what appears to be the 2010 class is happening in Chicago harbors. Thousands, perhaps far more than that, of dead gizzard shad in the 3- to 5-inch range are frozen in the ice of Chicago harbors or floating around in open patches of water. “Gizzard shad are pretty sensitive,’’ Lake Michigan Program biologist Dan Makauskas said. “On the toughness scale, the herrings are pretty soft.’’Gizzard shad, members of the herring family, are more sensitive to drops in oxygen levels than most fish. And thick ice came early to Chicago harbors in December.  The massive die-off was first documented Thursday by Carl Vizzone, a North Side fisherman who sits on the board of Perch America. What caught his eye was Canada geese and mallards eating dying shad at open water by DuSable and Diversey harbors. “This is not normal,’’ he said.

‘Concerning’ mass of dead fish, ducks blankets Little River in Windsor

February 19, 2011 1 comment

WINDSOR, Ont. — There’s an increasingly smelly fish-and-duck soup at the mouth of Little River as thousands of dead shad and several dozen dead ducks blanket the water’s surface, causing some alarm among residents.

“It seems a little strange,” said Mike Stoyshin, who noticed the mass of dead gizzard shad in the river while going for a walk Tuesday evening.

When he got a little closer, he realized there were several dead mallard and merganser ducks floating among the fish.

Mysterious fish deaths fan villagers’ fears in northern Turkey

February 19, 2011 Comments off

Sudden and unexplained mass fish deaths in the Black Sea region of Turkey have local residents worried about the safety of their water supply and calling on officials to solve the mystery.

When residents in Mescitli village in Gümüşhane province first observed dead fish in Harşit stream 15 days ago, they thought the fish had died of natural causes, said village head Cenk İnce.

“However, when we realized the number of dead fish had risen, we urgently informed the officials. There were fish for two kilometers along the shore, which worried us. We are using the stream’s water in our agricultural activities,” İnce said, according to the Doğan news agency, or DHA. He added that the villagers have urged officials to investigate immediately.

Genesis 1:26 “Then God said…, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness. They will rule the fish of the sea, the birds of the sky, the animals, all the earth, and the creatures that crawl on the earth.”

Ecclesiastes 9:12 “For man certainly does not know his time: like fish caught in a cruel net, or like birds caught in a trap, so people are trapped in an evil time, as it suddenly falls on them.”

Mankind has proved itself to be in Satan’s image. Mankind has been revoked of any rule over the animal kingdom as the destroyer angel brings devastation to the wildlife as a preview of what mankind can expect to rain down upon itself and surface from the depths of a poisoned planet. The rain of dead fowl and sea life coming to the surface will reveal the stagnation of mankind’s own future fate. The curse coupled with plague is ever widening on this planet. Look beyond Arkansas children. Remain steadfast in your faith. Only a remnant will survive what has come in upon this planet.
