Fish Armageddon: A Million Dead Sardines Wash Ashore In California

According to the Wall Street Journal, a million dead sardines washed ashore in a Southern California harbor, the largest fish kill known in the state. Scientists tested the surrounding waters for oil and chemicals, but found nothing. It's theorized that the fish may have died due to massive overcrowding in the harbor, causing the oxygen to deplete and the fish to suffocate.
