Fish Kill in Redondo

Today’s great distraction for this beachside CreekFreak were the helicopters signifying a Happening.
As has already been all over the news, there was a massive fish kill in Redondo Beach’s King Harbor. It is believed that the fish were running, er, swimming from predators and rough seas, and sought shelter in the calm waters behind the breakwaters. So many went in there that the water’s dissolved oxygen became depleted. No pollutants have been detected, not even the usual suspects that come with rainfall, nutrients, or red tide.
And so, everyone concludes: freaky but natural causes.
As natural as a man-made cul-de-sac marina.
