Dead Fish now Plague Colombian Coasts

Beaches in the Northwestern regions of Colombia, are the latest to be hit with the grim spectacle of thousands of dead fish, a bizarre occurrence plaguing Brazil, New Zealand, and at least three U.S. states, among others.

Marine biologists speculate that cold water temperatures could be behind these massive deaths. However, others allege that due to the heavy rainfalls in the area, the volume of fresh water hitting the ocean is larger, and the currents stronger, complicating the lives of thousands of fish already very susceptible to brash changes in their ecosystem.
