This ties in perfectly with the previous posts from Sigrid and from
Rocky regarding the massive croaker (fish) die-offs. They are
croaking from South Florida to the coast of Virgina.
I don’t know what can make thousands of fish bleed from their gills.
I know it ain’t natural.
I’m have trouble moving the actual url as sent from News Channel 12

Fish floating dead in the water

Biologists try to determine what is killing hundreds of fish in the
North Fork of the St Lucie River.
Residents say the smell is unbearable, and they’re finding all
different kinds of rare fish washed up dead.
The Department of Environmental Protection says it will test the
water to see if boats, destroyed during the hurricane, leaked fuel
possibly polluting the water and poisoning the fish. Another
possible cause is an algae like bloom that killed tens of thousands
of fish in Fort Pierce and could have blown South during the storm.
So far this is the only area in Martin County reporting widespread
fish kills since the hurricane. The city of Port St. Lucie is also
experiencing fish kills in the C-24 Canal.
