Millions and millions of fish dying in the Matagorda Bay, Texas and nobody knows why

There are currently millions and millions of fish dying in the Matagorda Bay, Texas and nobody knows why!

This terrifying video captured at the mouth of the Colorado River shows a sea of dead or dying fish have washed ashore.

The video was captured by Kyle Naegeli, also known as “The Fish Whisperer” on Youtube.

Fish are mainly menhaden, but there is a bunch of trout, flounder and red drums mixed in as well. They’re all down at the beach … just look at them all stacked up.

From the sky, the mass die-off spreads over several kilometers.

The massive fish mass die-off in Matagorda stretches over tens of kilometers.

According to Texas Parks and Wildlife, the most common cause of fish kills in the area is low dissolved oxygen. While this can be the result of human activity, it is in many cases a natural occurrence caused by extreme weather, bacterial and viral disease or parasitic infections. Sometimes, algal blooms can produce toxins that lead to fish kills.

  1. The “Corexit 9500” they sprayed during the massive BP oil spill is likely the cause in a continual release leaching from the bottom of the gulf killing in-discriminantly throughout the gulf region.

  2. También la radiactividad producida por los contenedores de uranio que se han dañado en Japón y en Nueva York.

  3. Hosea 4:3
    3 Therefore the land mourns,
    And everyone who lives in it languishes
    Along with the beasts of the field and the birds of the sky,
    And also the fish of the sea disappear.

    Be warned, the end really IS near.
