Thousands of shrimp were found dead last Friday on the shore of La Colonia beach in Águilas. The image surprised neighbors and visitors who were enjoying a day at the beach, when they ran into a trail of about six meters full of these marine decapods.

The Councilor for the Environment, Ginés Desiderio Navarro, explained to LA VERDAD that “what happened in La Colonia is usually common after storms. It is a natural phenomenon. Marine currents occur in this breeding season, and they often take these beings out of the water, who suffocate to death on the shore ». He added that “many fishermen also commented on what had happened, but it is normal.”
