Fishermen Catch The Blame Again, Never-mind the Pollution
ORMOND-BY-THE-SEA — Officials believe that thousands of fish that washed ashore Sunday, both at Ormond-by-the-Sea and Ponce Inlet, are the by-catch of shrimp boats, a Volusia County Beach Patrol captain said.
“We don’t know absolutely for sure, but I’ve called around and everyone seems to think they are from the shrimp boats,” Capt. Tammy Marris said Sunday afternoon.
“At first everyone just thought it was (the shrimp boats), but there were so many fish,” she said. “I don’t see how it could be that.”
Dead fish, mostly whiting, were visible on the beach as far as the eye could see both to the north and to the south.
Kevin Soravilla, visiting from New Jersey, was worried that a lack of oxygen or a drop in the water temperature caused the fish to die.
Sounds just like blaming the fishermen in the Gulf of Mexico for dead sea turtles. Nevermind toxic rain, increases in uv radiation, hypoxia, temperatures, toxic algae blooms all over the world and pollution from pesticides, fertilizers, plastics and yeah BP’S OIL SPILL. Yep, must of been the fishermen, they love to dump fish instead of taking them in to get PAID for them, RIGHT!
