2 million dead fish in Maryland's Chesapeake Bay

'Very large' fish kill reported in bay, Baltimore Sun, January 5, 2011:

State officials say they are investigating a "very large" fish kill in the Chesapeake Bay, but suspect cold temperatures killed them, rather than any water-quality problems.

An estimated 2 million fish have been reported dead from the Bay Bridge south to Tangier Sound, according to the Maryland Department of the Environment, which investigates fish kills. The dead fish are primarily adult spot, with some juvenile croakers.

    As expected, it's coming right up the Atlantic.... This is horrible-total nightmare. I'm so ashamed that many Americans seemingly can't think for themselves or don't care.
