Mass fish die-off reported at Kvaenes beach, Norway

Mass fish die-off was reported at Kvaenes beach in Kvænes, Tromsø, in the northerly district of Nordreisa, Norway on Dec 31th according to local media Nordlys and Dagbladet.

The cause of death is currently unknown. Scientists are looking for possible reasons to see if they were driven to their death by a predator or simply swept ashore by a storm. Locals are more worried about the smell: unless someone cleans up the mess quickly, Nordreisa will start to choke in the herring smell.

Kvænes beach near the city of  Tromsø is warmer than most other places located on the same latitude, due to the warming effect of the Gulf Stream which originates at the tip of Florida.

Locals point that something similar happened in the 80′s, and there is speculation among others on the river which flows into the ocean behind a promontory on the site that may have had something to do with it.

Experts have said the school could have been trapped by tidal waters after predatory fish – such as coalfish – chased them towards the shoreline.

Last month 25 dead horses were discovered at the bottom of a cliff near Glenn Innes, New England. On Sunday, 200 blackbirds mysteriously fell from the sky in the small town of Beebe, Arkansas – although officials again give firecrackers as the cause of mass death. It looks like last year’s mass animal deaths scenario is repeating again.

  1. I have been very dissatisfied with lame stream media sources lately and I decided to take matters in my own hands by doing some research on this invaluable tool called the internet.

    I read an article that has helped me better understand global aquatic die-offs in oceans, lakes and waterways of our planet. It’s called “Limnic Overturn” or CO2 that builds-up in lakes and is now globally manifesting itself in many bodies of water.

    Wikipedia has a great write-up on CO2 suffocation or Limnic Overturn examples starting with lakes in Africa that have experienced a complete die-off of aquatic life in lake(s) including the death of humans (in the past) and animals within a sixteen-plus mile radius of the source.

    Another consideration is SO2 or sulphur dioxide (bird die-offs I believe or canary in a coal mine and piezoelectricity) due to recent volcanism becoming more active around the world.

    What is agitating our planet internally to cause it to become more volcanically active to produce such deadly outcomes of fish/bird die-offs? I will no longer entertain the thought(s) of man-made global warming replete with it’s “all our fault” assumptions.

    These issues require some critical thought coupled with common sense.

    Immanuel Velikovsky is a good place to start with “Worlds in Collision and Earth in Upheaval” and by all means his writings are not be all, end all either, but is a good place to begin your search for the truth, then you decide.

    I hope with the little information I have provided will help you ‘seek and solve’ your inquiries that others have trouble defining.

    Upward and onward . . .
