Cold kills thousands of fish

“It will affect the pelicans and larger fish that eat mullet,” said Jeffrey Trout at Harbor View Marine in Pensacola. “And the baby mullet. It will affect the fishing for sure.”
“Rarely do waters get so cold in this region of the country that a massive amount of fish dies all at one time, but that’s just what happened last week in Gulf Shores, Alabama,” says the Pensacola News Journal.

Jeffrey Trout said he saw at least 4,000 to 5,000 dead mullet in a canal near his home on Jan. 11. He said they ranged from 6 to 12 inches in length.

“Gulf Shores paid a sub contractor $9,600 to clean the 24,000 pounds of dead mullet,’ the article continues. “The cleanup took four days.”

“The mass death of the mullet is bad news for both fishermen and the wildlife in that area.

A representative with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission confirmed Trout’s analysis, saying “we suspect these are related to sudden and prolonged drops in temperature.”

  1. On nature shows, any thst are still on TV, they replay the warm years, or say it’s unusual for snow to melt in low elevations, which it isn’t. The wolves struggle with lack of snow they say. No, they don’t, they just aren’t as completely dominant to entirely wipe out their prey base. Yukon wolves transplanted to Yellowstone have an advantage in snow. Then, they say the reason they are moving Lake Superior caribou (wasn’t aware of them) is lack of ice bridges for them to escape the wolves. Not this winter. Yes, if you film over 12 years you can occasionally find a mild winter that’s not 40 below.

  2. I rarely post here because most of those who seem vistit here are a lot more knowledgeable in regards to climate than I. With that said I in no way believe that CO2 causes the climate to change in any direction. I continually study and read all kinds of articles related to Climate, CO2, Radioactive Forcing, Sunspots, The Ice Age and Glacial Periods and the dozens of variables related to climate etc. But when you start seeing stuff like this it makes wonder if we are in for something worse than the Maunder or Dalton Minimums aka Little Ice Age?

  3. remember the Russian science guys who said the little ice age began in 2014? and it would start gradually and then build momentum, moving further & further South, and begin & end with week-by-week time encroachments into October and March? Those guys are starting to look like geniuses, even though the big El Nino of ’16-’17 threw things off a bit.

    And the warmists are crowing about another fraction of a degree rise in the Modified Tempreture records maintained by English speaking Met Offices.
    Its these same persons who are in charge of climate records and modifying them to suit their political objectives, paid for by Your Tax £ & $, and did the same in the Financial world they would be in jail faster than a speeding bullet.
