I recently heard of a report of a red tide in the Chesapeake. Apparently it's when small organisms increase their population tremendoulsy and sap a lot of oxygen from the water. The intersesting part of this is that all the sea life in the water try to get O from the air and therefore, there are a LOT of fish and crabs of all sizes covering the beach (I would guess that they beach themselves somehow). I had never heard of it before today. If you have any stories or experience of this phenomenom, please share...

It was scattered all over a few weeks ago down here....Pin riggers could not keep bait alive more than a few minutes before fish would die.

This prolonged NE blow has swept it out for the most part!

Nasty stuff and will shut it down quick!

O ok, the fish are just washed up onto shore after they die from lack of oxygen. That's a mess! Luckily it doesn't happen very often!

Of course that's just another one of natures ways to help keep things straight in the environment...
