Thousands of dead fish wash up on Rinconcillo beach in Spain #fish #Spain

Fish Kill Alert

Thousands of small dead fish have flooded much of El Rinconcillo beach, in Algeciras, this Sunday. In principle, it is not known why the presence of so many dead fish on the shore may be due, but it is not ruled out that it is due to a natural phenomenon.

It is not the first time that large banks of very different species such as “gherkins”, “trumpeters”, “little stars” or different varieties of jellyfish are dragged by the sea currents or by the storms of Levante and gale, after the seabed has been agitated . The currents start the different colonies of algae and with them, the different species that live among them.

Ecologists in the area also point out that the floods of the Guadarranque and Palmones rivers are caused by an excess of fresh water that causes this situation, which, contrary to what may seem, may be making clear that the ecosystem is recovering.
