Default 'One million' dead sardines clog Redondo Beach marina

This is Redondo Beach California, Kings Harbor where, on the morning of March 8th, millions of dead Sardine were found. They literally clogged parts of the harbor. The dead Sardine weren’t just on the surface, they were many feet deep.

YouTube - Hundreds Of Thousands Of Dead Fish In Redondo Beach

US officials fear a public health hazard after an estimated one million sardines that inexplicably washed up in a California marina begin to rot.
The carcasses coated the surface of the King Harbor Marina in Redondo Beach, near Los Angeles, and piled as high as 18in (46cm) on the marina floor.
Officials said the fish had sought shelter from rough seas and soon exhausted the water's oxygen supply.
