What is causing some marine life along the West Coast to disintegrate and die-off?
Health officials are warning seafood lovers to avoid shellfish, crustaceans and fish from Ventura County because dangerous levels of a nerve toxin have been detected in some species.
Officials say thousands of anchovies and sardines have died in Ventura Harbor after using up all their oxygen.
The massive fish die-off in a King Harbor is benefiting a Mojave Desert composting firm that is recycling the stinking haul for use as fertilizer.
Researchers say the millions of sardines that were found floating dead in a Southern California marina this week tested positive for a powerful neurotoxin.
A natural disaster became a man-made disaster Friday when thousands of dead sardines that perished in a huge, unexplained die-off spilled onto a Southern California freeway as they were being hauled to a composting center.
It could take a week — and the smell could get pretty bad — before crews manage to scoop and vacuum up tons of dead sardines from a Southern California marina.
Many of those millions of dead fish that floated into King Harbor Monday night are destined for a compost heap, according to authorities.
Cleanup crews are scheduled to return Wednesday to the site where millions of small fish, primarily sardines, were found dead at Redondo Beach’s King Harbor.
