More than 500 deep-sea lanternfish, squid found dead or dying in Nawiliwili area


Anonymous wrote: Multi-ship exercise underway Seven Hawaii-ported and two San Diego-based surface ships are taking part in an integrated maritime exercise in waters off the Hawaiian Islands. The Koa Kai — Sea Warrior — exercise prepares independent deployers in multiple warfare areas while also providing training in a multi-ship environment, according to the Commander, Navy Region Hawaii &Naval Surface Group Middle Pacific Public Affairs Office. Participants will conduct integrated flight operations, and anti-surface and antisubmarine training. “Koa Kai provides an opportunity to exercise multiple warfare disciplines to ensure our ships maintain warfighting readiness and the capability to operate forward on short notice,” Rear Adm. Rick Williams, Commander, Navy Region Hawaii &Naval Surface Group Middle Pacific said in a prepared statement. “Koa Kai is integrated, challenging, state-of-the-art training for our sea warriors here in the Middle Pacific that helps us achieve full deployment readiness.” He added, “We will show, test and assess our capabilities in coordination with the Navy’s premier testing and training range — Pacific Missile Range Facility” located on Kauai. The weeklong exercise got underway Friday. The office said it is unlikely any of the exercises will be visible from Hawaii Island. The San Diego-based ships participating are the USS Cape St. George and USS Lake Champlain. Hawaii-ported ships participating are the guided-missile cruisers USS Port Royal, USS Lake Erie, and USS Chosin; and guided-missile destroyers USS Michael Murphy, USS Halsey, USS Chung-Hoon and USS O’Kane. The ships will be joined by an underway replenishment ship, the HMCS Protecteur from Canada and assets from Commander, Submarine Force U.S. Pacific Fleet; Helicopter Maritime Strike Squadron 37; Commander, Patrol and Reconnaissance Wing 2; VMFA-224, 24 Maritime Air Group, Hawaii Air National Guard, and the 25th Combat Aviation Brigade. - See more at:

This is old news now, but I have frequented this marina on many occasions, so sad to see this kind of thing happen in my own back yard.  It is terrible to see 100,000 plus fish die.  They were living creatures, makes my heart break.

Now they are saying that the oxygen levels are good again and they may restock the marina soon.  I worry that how do they know what happened before may happen again?

Another week of mass die offs: 2nd week of June see's tons more dead fish wash up along with dead cattle and birds around the world!!

n Saturday the Radioagencia Nacional reported 23,000 turtles, sea birds and dolphins have been found dead during past two years along coast of Santa Catarina and Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Another 2,500 were rescued in poor health conditions and collected for treatment. The main causes of deaths have been the ingestion of garbage and accidents with fishing nets, varying according to species. The biggest victims are the green turtles, the little fox (small migratory seabird), the porpoises and the gray dolphins.

Also on Saturday South China Sea Network reported a massive die off of fish in a fish farm in Lingshui, China.
Experts blame hypoxia.

On Saturday Bangor Daily News reported dead gannets washing up on the shore of southern Maine and Massachusetts have raised suspicions that a toxic algal bloom could be to blame.
Scientists have said that warming ocean temperatures and pollution have contributed to harmful algal blooms that have been reported in recent years in Florida, on the West Coast and, to a lesser extent, in Maine.

On the same day the reported dozens of cattle killed by 'mysterious disease' in Kurram, Pakistan.

A day earlier  Quintana Roo News reported 600+ cattle have died due to drought in Quintana Roo, Mexico.
Water in the area is at it's lowest level ever.
The intense heatwave and lack of water is killing the livestock.

On Tuesday Riviera Maya News  reported a large number of baby turtles found dead in Cancun, Mexico.
The dead turtles are hawksbill, loggerheads and white species.

Also on Tuesday Chinese news  reported 20 tons of fish die in a reservoir in Fujian, China.
Sewage was thought to be responsible for the deaths

On Monday Concho Valley reported thousands of dead fish found in the Concho River in Texas, America.
Thousands of fish are dying and Texas Parks and Wildlife officials are trying to figure out why.
The corpses of bass, carp, perch and catfish have all been found along the river bank near Mullins Crossing and about four miles south of HWY 67 in Tom Green County.
Area residents first spotted the washed up fish over the weekend, with even more turning up on Monday.

Also on Monday The Weather Channel reported a massive die off of fish in Puget Sound in Washington, America

Thousands of anchovies washed up on the shores of Puget Sound in Washington last week after hot weather over the weekend changed the feeding patterns of the fish, state wildlife officials say.

The fish reportedly began to wash up on beaches at Case Inlet near Belfair, Washington, early last week and continued to do so throughout the week, KOMO News reported.

'Straight out of an apocalyptic horror movie!' Rotting bird carcasses littering the streets, of Zug Island Detroit experts not sure why!

With hundreds of screeching seagulls hovering above and rotting bird carcasses littering the streets, the scene near Zug Island and the waste water treatment plant in Southwest Detroit seems straight out of an apocalyptic horror movie.

Young seagulls pitching camp near Jefferson Avenue are dying off en masse, and the Department of Natural Resources isn't quite sure why.

Residents and commuters reported the deaths, some claiming to have seen at least 100 bloodied and rotting bird carcasses at a time littering the roadway throughout the last week - week 5 to 11 Jun 2017.
The birds are young.
They have been picked at, and their bodies are everywhere.

The area is a highly industrial part of the city, and many have jumped to conclusions about toxic waste poisoning the birds.

Tom Cooley, a biologist with the DNR's wildlife disease lab team, is looking for a clear answer. Cooley and his team collected samples of the carcasses and are currently running multiple tests, including toxicology examinations for metals and pesticides, as well as botulism and histopathology exams looking for skin disease.
Some of the tests may take weeks to produce conclusive answers, but Cooley believes, for now, that the birds are simply competing for limited resources.

A million seabirds died in less than a year as a result of a giant “blob” of hot ocean, according to new research.  A study released by the University of Washington found the birds, called common murres, probably died of starvation between the summer of 2015 and the spring of 2016. [Hot blob link: ]

Most dead seabirds never wash ashore, so while 62,000 dead or dying murres were found along the coasts of Alaska, Washington, Oregon and California, researchers estimate the total number is closer to 1 million.

Alaska saw the most birds wash up. In Prince William Sound in southern Alaska, more than 4,500 bird carcasses were found every kilometer, or 0.62 miles.

The blob stems from a years-long severe marine heatwave, believed to be caused by an anticyclone weather system that first appeared in 2013. The weather phenomenon known as El Niño accelerated the warming temperatures beginning in 2015 and, by 2016, the rising heat resulted in water temperatures nearly 11F (6C) above average.

Anticyclones form when a mass of air cools, contracts and becomes more dense, increasing the weight of the atmosphere and the surface air pressure.

Heat maps at the time showed a huge red blob growing, spanning more than 380,000 sq miles (1m sq km). That’s nearly 1.5 times the size of Texas or four times the size of New Zealand.

The study found that the murres mostly likely starved to death. The seabird must eat half its body weight to survive, but food grew scarce amid intense competition from other creatures. Warming ocean waters gave fish such as salmon and halibut a metabolism boost, causing a fight for survival over the limited supply of smaller fish.

Researchers also uncovered other effects, including a vast bloom of harmful algae along the US west coast that cost fisheries millions of dollars in revenue. Other animals also died off, including sea lions, tufted puffins and baleen whales.

“Think of it as a run on the grocery stores at the same time that the delivery trucks to the stores stopped coming so often,” Julia Parrish, a co-author of the study and UW professor in the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences, said in a press release.

The murres’ population also took a hit. According to the study, a limited food supply resulted in reduced breeding colonies across the entire region. Between the 2015 and 2016 breeding seasons, more than 15 colonies did not produce a single chick. Researchers say those estimates could be low since they only monitor a quarter of all colonies.

The seabird has not replenished in numbers after the mass die-off.

“The magnitude and scale of this failure has no precedent,” said John Piatt, the lead researcher. “It was astonishing and alarming, and a red-flag warning about the tremendous impact sustained ocean warming can have on the marine ecosystem.”

Researchers cannot determine how long it will take for the population to rebound – or if it ever will.

“In light of predicted global warming trends and the associated likelihood of more frequent heatwaves”, the study concluded, this could be a stark warning about the impending effects of the climate crisis.

Meanwhile, another huge heat blob has formed off the Washington coast and up into the Gulf of Alaska, and is growing.

This article was amended on 16 January 2020. An earlier version incorrectly identified the location of the heat blob as off the coast of New Zealand. It is located in the north Pacific
We've got an announcement…
… on our progress as an organisation. In service of the escalating climate emergency, we have made an important decision – to renounce fossil fuel advertising, becoming the first major global news organisation to institute an outright ban on taking money from companies that extract fossil fuels.

In October we outlined our pledge: that the Guardian will give global heating, wildlife extinction and pollution the urgent attention and prominence they demand. This resonated with so many readers around the world. We promise to update you on the steps we take to hold ourselves accountable at this defining point in our lifetimes. With climate misinformation rife, and never more dangerous than now, the Guardian's accurate, authoritative reporting is vital – and we will not stay quiet.

You've read 8 articles in the last four months. We chose a different approach: to keep Guardian journalism open for all. We don't have a paywall because we believe everyone deserves access to factual information, regardless of where they live or what they can afford to pay.

Our editorial independence means we are free to investigate and challenge inaction by those in power. We will inform our readers about threats to the environment based on scientific facts, not driven by commercial or political interests. And we have made several important changes to our style guide to ensure the language we use accurately reflects the environmental emergency.

The Guardian believes that the problems we face on the climate crisis are systemic and that fundamental societal change is needed. We will keep reporting on the efforts of individuals and communities around the world who are fearlessly taking a stand for future generations and the preservation of human life on earth. We want their stories to inspire hope.

We hope you will consider supporting us today. We need your support to keep delivering quality journalism that’s open and independent. Every reader contribution, however big or small, is so valuable. Support the Guardian from as little as $1 – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
