What a shocking waste of natural resources! This is the latest on the Redondo Beach Dead Fish. Millions of dead fish are floating in Redondo Beach, California on March 2011. This massive fish kill was due to the oxygen depletion in the King Harbor basins.

City officials with the help of marine experts would determine if there was any environmental issue involved. Water tests are now being performed as officials begin removing the dead fish. Investigations are being done to determine what could have brought oxygen levels to nearly zero, but the likely cause is an algal bloom and subsequent decay.

“There are no visible signs of any toxins that might have caused [the die-off] and our early assessment is that this was oxygen depletion,” Workman said. “This is similar to what we experienced five years ago but that was distinctly a red tide event but there’s no discoloration of the water, no associated foaming in the waves, Workman said. “There are no oil slicks or leaking of substances into the water.”
