I was just wondering I was at Battery Park this past week end in Sandusky looking at my old haunts there and how much it has changed. There was a strong NE wind blowing and at the corner of the pier were about 20 dead carp 1 walleye and a few white bass and sheep head congragated there all dead???, also several fish strewn about on the pier, probably brought up by birds. Does any one know the cause or reason for this??? Didnt look good I personally do not like to see that many dead fish.

when we were in dunkirk n.y. last week the gizzard shad were dieing off in big numbers.it was really strange too.they would flip around the surface then start swimming on their side in real tight circles with their head out of the water.
there were so many of them dead that the boat ramp smelled to high heaven!
the workers at the ramp were shoveling them up each morning.
we heard several different stories about what was causing it but the most common was that a virus was causing the kill.
