Biggest whale beaching known to science, tells me that Fukushima Radiation has reached not only the South Pacific, but also the Southern Ocean.  This means that ALL the OCEANS of the WORLD will now begin receiving the "gift that keeps on giving".....Fukushima Radiation.... NO MORE OCEAN FISH, unless you want to "glow in the dark".....

My thanks to Yamkin for digging this up....

337 dead whales have been found, 
BIGGEST EVENT EVER KNOWN, in Patagonia region, Chile
Picture of dead whales
Scientists made a startling discovery on an observation flight over a remote fjord in southern Chile’s Patagonia: 337 dead whales. That is the biggest single whale stranding event known to science.
Because of the remoteness of the area and the roughness of the seas, scientists have not been able to examine the whales directly, but aerial and satellite photography identified 305 bodies and 32 skeletons in an area between the Gulf of Penas and Puerto Natales, toward the southern tip of the continent.
Many of the remains were in advanced states of decay so it’s unclear what species they are, says lead scientist Carolina Simon Gutstein of the Universidad de Chile and Consejo de Monumentos Nacionales in Santiago. But based on their size and location, they are probably sei whales, she says.
Endangered throughout its range, sei whales are large, bluish-gray baleen whales that filter the water to feed on krill and other small creatures. They can reach 64 feet (19.5 meters) long and 50 tons. Considered the fastest cetacean, sei whales can swim at speeds up to 31 miles (50 kilometers) per hour. Their lifespan is 50 to 70 years, and they are usually found in deep waters far from coastlines. The worldwide population is estimated at about 80,000.
Gutstein and colleagues actually made the discovery on June 23, with support for the observation flights provided by the National Geographic Society Waitt Grants Program. The team is analyzing its findings for publication in a scientific journal, but the story leaked Friday in the Chilean press. “We are planning on going back there in the summer to try to study them more closely,” says Gutstein.
Thirty sei whales were seen stranded in the same general area in April by Vreni Häussermann of the Huinay Scientific Field Station. That prompted Gutstein and Häussermann to team up, pool resources, and to look further with flights and remote imagery (the pair made the discovery jointly on June 23, with the Institut de Ecologia y Biodiversidad). (Learn how people can help stranded whales.)
The scientists are still trying to figure out what caused the die-off, and the Chilean government has launched an investigation since whales are protected there. Gutstein did not want to speculate on the cause of death but in the past red tides (blooms of toxic microorganisms) have been blamed for whale deaths in the region. Red tides can be caused or exacerbated by nutrients from sewage and fertilizer, although it’s often “very difficult to find one person or corporation culpable,” says Gutstein.
The status of whales off Chile is poorly known, she adds. “We know some about how many have died now but how many are alive? We don’t know,” she says. “We don’t have much data.”
Toxic blooms may have been the culprit in mass death of marine mammals off Chile three to five million years ago, according to another National Geographic explorer. That evidence was found by Nicholas Pyenson of the Smithsonian in a fossil bed in Chile’s Atacama Desert.
About fifteen years ago, some 600 gray whales were stranded on the North American Pacific Coast from Alaska to Mexico, but that occurred over a vast area and over a longer span. In Patagonia, the whales were found close together. Nearly 200 whales were stranded in New Zealand in February.

10 Dolphins found stranded, 5 dead on coast of Baja California, Mexico
The man named Marco who found Arreola Cisterna ten dolphins stranded on the coast without being able to swim in deep sea, sought help through social networks in which groups of people came to the rescue of animals.
"What if we could help because they were seven dolphins that had seen first and we did many as we did not know what to do, asked for help but no one came, we have eight to about four we realized that there were two more" said the young man.
The animals were taken offshore by local people, however, the Federal Attorney for Environmental Protection (Profepa) through a statement issued Thursday, announced that five of them were found dead, allegedly by a systemic infection caused by an unknown agent.
Authorities said they were completely overrun by parasites and the infectious process passes into the brain of animals, so I do not know where to go and even if they try to take to the sea, they will return, said Francisco Gomez Diaz, an expert on cetaceans and director of the Whale Museum.

200,000+ fish have died due to algae in Middle River, Maryland, USA
The sunshine glistening on the water makes Middle River feel peaceful and pristine.  But the image is spoiled when your eyes land on a dead fish, in the water and on the boat ramps. 
Scott Sewell has grown up on the water in Middle River.  
"We've lost the entire ecosystem of fish because there are minnows, there are baby fish that big of every species that lived here, plus every size you can imagine up to adult so every species," said Sewell.    
Sewell and other watermen are doing their own investigation, as the Maryland Department of the Environment continues to look into what killed about 200,000 fish, double the first estimate.
An MDE spokesman says after getting samples of the water and tissue from the fish, preliminary results show a strain of algae that produces a toxin harmful to fish but not to people or other animals.
"They wanted to fish really bad and I was like, ah no," said Eric Plantholt, who was putting his boat in the water.
Plantholt had to explain to his family they may see dead fish while heading out for a boat ride.
"With all the industrial stuff around here that there's a company or something that's doing something wrong and taking away our way of life on the water," Plantholt said. 
Tilley Chemical, Lockheed Martin and Middle River Aircraft are a few of the businesses close to the water. 
"There was a drain pipe about eight or 10 inches in diameter and there was a liquid coming out of it and it had a very pungent odor," Sewell said. 
MDE has no evidence of any chemical pollution as a cause. 
Sewell and the MDE says algae blooms are more typical in the spring and summer months.  Their investigation continues.
"Little ditches that feed in, they swam up into there and just become trapped and died while they were trying to escape it.  It's heartbreaking," said Sewell. 
MDE recommends avoid eating fish from the area.

3 dead whales found washed up at Bird Point in
British Columbia, Canada

The recent deaths of three young fin whales near Bella Bella are causing concern after a summer that saw an unusual spike in large whale deaths.
A helicopter pilot on his way to a remote logging camp spotted the three dead whales at Bird Point on Sunday, and called the B.C. Marine Mammal Response Network to report them, according to Paul Cottrell, Pacific marine mammal coordinator for Fisheries and Oceans Canada.
“Fin whales are listed as threatened under the Species at Risk Act, so every animal is extremely important to the population. Seeing three together, obviously it’s disturbing and we want to find out what happened,” Cottrell said.
He added that it’s very unusual for baleen whales like fins to die in groups.
Scientists conducted necropsies on the animals on Tuesday in an attempt to figure out what caused their deaths and whether they died on the beach or in nearby waters. All three are juvenile male whales.
Samples have been taken from the whales’ stomachs and colons to determine if a biotoxin in their food may have killed them. It’s also possible that they were corralled and pushed toward the beach by transient killer whales hunting them for food.
“We’re trying to go through this methodically and rule things out and hopefully get closer to determining what may have caused this,” Cottrell said.
The results of lab tests may take a while, though, because of a backlog caused by a pulse of large whale deaths this summer along the West Coast of North America.
“We’re really working everybody pretty hard, and these three fin whales doesn’t lessen the load at all,” Cottrell said.
Four humpback whales were found dead in a single week in B.C. waters in August, and as of this week, five fin whale carcasses have been discovered. One sperm whale and one grey whale have also died this year.
Meanwhile, more than 30 large whales have died off the coast of Alaska.
Scientists have yet to determine why so many whales have died, and it has proven difficult to get samples from many of the animals found in the U.S.
Cottrell said that researchers are still waiting for the results of tests that will determine if a toxin produced by algae was involved. Scientists are also testing for radionucleotides to see if radioactivity was a factor.
All samples from B.C. and Alaska are being tested in the same lab to maintain consistency, and results are expected within about a month.

Thousands of dead fish plus other marine life found, 'causes alarm' in the Kifissos River, Greece
Regional and municipal environmental officials on Thursday collected samples of water from the Kifissos River after residents of Nea Philadelphia, in northeastern Athens, alerted them to the presence of thousands of dead fish and other aquatic life.
Residents spotted the dead fish on Wednesday. “I’ve never seen so many fish in my life,” resident Chrysanthi Georgiou told Kathimerini. “We saw them flopping about in the water, as if they were suffocating,” she said, adding that within an hour the river had filled with dead fish, eels and aquatic turtles.
There are concerns among residents of Nea Philadelphia and beyond that the sudden death of river life in the Kifissos could have been prompted by the dumping of toxic waste.

Massive fish kill washes up on Sanibel Island in Florida, USA
A massive fish kill on Sanibel Island could keep beachgoers out of the water and off of the sand.
Before walking out on the beach at Gulfside City Park Wednesday night, you could certainly smell that something fishy was going on as thousands of dead fish have washed ashore.
When Erin Neitzlt and her friend Joyce Nardo made their way to the Gulfside Beach, they were looking for a little getaway.
"I just like the sea air. It smells good out here, listening to the waves. It's a good way to relax out here and beat some stress," said Neitzlt. "To relax, hear the waves, I love it here."
They likely didn't expect to find thousands of dead fish strewn across the beach, which could likely be the result of red tide.
The latest reports released Wednesday by Florida Fish and Wildlife indicate the algae bloom, which is common in November, has made its way to Southwest Florida.
"It's a little fishy, but it's refreshing," said Joice Nardo.
Fish kills can also be caused by sudden increase or decrease in water temperatures, as some fish species are sensitive to these types of environmental changes.
Erin and Joyce aren't letting a few fish kill their moonlit relaxation time on the beach.
"When I heard what was going on, it didn't make a difference. I still put my chair right here in the sand so I can listen to the waves," said Neitzlt.
"It doesn't matter what's on the beach, I'm just going to listen to the waves and smell the ocean air."
NBC2 has made calls in to several local marine life experts to confirm exactly what caused all these fish to wash up dead here on the beach.

2,200 ducks dead due to avian flu in Battambang, Cambodia
Two outbreaks of H5N1 avian flu have hit thousands of ducks in Siem Reap and Battambang provinces, according to data from the World Organisation for Animal Health published on Monday.
About 2,100 infected ducks died in Battambang and 180 more in Siem Reap as of November 12, according to the organisation’s report. Currently, 8,800 ducks in the country remain susceptible to the illness.
The infected birds came from free-ranging backyard flocks.
“After having been informed by the owners that their duck flocks were sick and were dying, the district and provincial veterinary services went there to investigate and took some samples,” the report reads. “The result of test samples were confirmed positive with H5N1.”
The latest outbreaks have yet to spread to human patients, according to Ly Sovann, director of the Health Ministry’s Department of Communicable Disease Control.
“We sent our response teams yesterday to monitor the human health of those who live in or near the affected areas,” Sovann said. “Up to now, they collected five suspected human samples but all were negative.”
The last detected human case of H5N1 avian flu in Cambodia was in March, said Sovann. The Ministry of Agriculture has not yet given a reason for these latest outbreaks.
At least 100 ducks remain sick in Siem Reap’s Puok district, according to district animal health official Marn Cheb. They were among the 6,500 ducks who arrived from Banteay Meanchey’s Mongkol Borei district on Sunday.
“After arriving in Puok district, some ducks started to get sick and some of them died. Seeing the ducks dead, the owner separated the sick ducks to a separate cage, then informed the district officials,” Cheb said.
Prum Vich, chief of the Agriculture Ministry’s animal health and production office in Siem Reap, said that the ducks were transported to the district under heat and heavy rain, and the sick ducks will be buried to prevent the disease spread.
“The flu cannot spread to humans if we know how to prevent it correctly,” he said.
Agriculture Ministry officials in Battambang were not available for comment yesterday.
According to Sovann, H5N1 is a “high-mortality” disease, which killed five people out of a total of nine cases in 2014.
The World Health Organization found that in human cases, the mortality rate hovers at around 60 per cent.
Nonetheless, the disease has “limited transmission”, Sovann said. People become infected by eating sick birds or touching contaminated surfaces.
