A massive kill of up to a million fish on the shores of Sebastian Inlet State Park in Florida have residents shocked. Many are reporting that they have never seen anything like it.

“I saw the fish jumping out there and I thought it was going to be a really good day for fishing, and then I noticed over here in the surf that they’re all dead,” fisherman Jeff Johnson told WPBF 25 News.FWC biologists arrived to assess the situation and take water samples as people watched.”It’s a little shocking, yes,”

Johnson said. “I don’t know if there’s chemicals in the water or the temperatures that caused this.”

Biologists said it’s neither….(

Biologists are reporting it is a lack of oxygen that has killed the fish.

They also pretend that this is normal or at least to be expected.

But the fish kill likely points to a deeper problem.

Pollution kills fish by creating a situation in which water lacks oxygen. The ocean’s fish are facing a massive die off from over fishing and pollution.

Maybe biologists think this deplorable situation is normal. Or at least they have been trained to make us think it is normal.
