Death in the Desert

Three million fish committ suicide in the desert
- A very large number of fish die in California's largest lake, the Salton Sea. These events are not unique to this lake; even large areas of the ocean
experience them. The eutrophication
of coastal regions, as well as land surrounding inland waters, is often to blame for the degraded water quality that leads to these deaths. For the record: the initial report of suicide by the fish can neither be confirmed or denied.
