70,000 Fish Turn Up Dead in Marina Del Rey | NBC Southern California

…………”lack of oxygen”……………….

Authorities were trying to determine what caused tens of thousands of fish to turn up dead in the waters off Marina del Rey over the weekend.

 

The first report came in just after 9 p.m. Saturday at the A-Basin in the 13000 block of Tahiti Way, officials said. When sheriff’s deputies arrived, they discovered an estimated 70,000 dead anchovies floating in the water, along with other sea life, including sting rays and angel sharks.

It was not immediately known what caused the fish to die and wash up to the basin. A bait fish expert told NBC4 that Saturday night’s low tide combined with low oxygen levels may have been the cause of the massive die off.
