Masses of fish found dead on a lake in eastern Sweden have left experts theorizing that the harsh winter and icy conditions prevented the fish from getting enough oxygen.

The Dannemore lake, near Östhammar in the east of Sweden, was discovered to be covered with floating fish this weekend as the ice began to melt. Among the dead fish were pike, perch, roach, and bream.

"It was not a pleasant sight, there were tonnes on fish on the lake," Timo Hakulinen, who made the discovery, told the Aftonbladet newspaper.

Mysterious manatee and pelican deaths mount: Manatee deaths have reached 100 and pelican deaths top 250 in the Brevard County region. Video by Jim Waymer.
Add bottlenose dolphins to this year’s list of species dying mysteriously in the Indian River Lagoon.
Researchers have documented 23 dead dolphins in the lagoon since Jan. 1, all but a few in Brevard County. That’s more than twice what researchers would expect, based on the death rate during the past decade.
"It’s especially scary now to be losing so many manatees, and now dolphins," said Teresa Mazza, a biologist with the Hubbs-SeaWorld Research Institute, which gathers the carcasses for research purposes.
The lagoon has seen at least 100 mysterious manatee deaths in just over eight months and 250 dead pelicans in the past two months, with most in Brevard.
Most of the dead dolphin have been adult females. The bottlenose deaths have occurred from Titusville to Central Brevard.


and there are many, many more...most of which have no explanation.
