Is Corexit killing all those fish? Share | jeff posted:8/12/2010 10:09:02 PM (Reply)Don't know about you, but I'm seeing one hell of a lot of stories about dead fish washing up everywhere..."experts" blaming oxygen depletion. I don't buy it...mysticaura posted:8/14/2010 10:17:06 AM (Reply)I'm sorry that I'm not up to date on the fish. Is it because of the oil spill? If not then why so many dead fish?AlimarParanormal posted:8/15/2010 11:12:58 AM (Reply)I believe it has everything to do with the Gulf Oil crisis. One of the effects of a large oil leak (it was not a spill, by the way) is a build up of bacteria that eats oil, which also deprives the water of oxygen, thus killing off marine life in the area. It was predicted that the oil would travel up the Atlantic, and as a matter of fact, dead fish are turning up in droves up in Massechusetts.

REALLY? Would love to know how that works.. Seems our media runs on oil as well.jeff posted:8/19/2010 2:14:04 AM (Reply)LOL...I think when they say nature is 'taking care of it' that has something to do with bacteria 'attacking' the oil yet depleting the oxygen and killing the fish...which kill the birds and everyone else up the food chain...
