redondo beach anchovy dying

March 9, 2011

While I was at work today, news came in that millions of anchovies had suddenly died and washed up at the Redondo Beach Marina, sixty miles north of San Clemente. I finished work an hour early and drove up there to see if there was still some cleaning up going on that would be worth photographing. By the time I arrived, most of the work was already done but there were still quite a few dead fish floating around. I started taking some pictures and ended up with these three shots:

Dead anchovies float between boats at the King Harbor Marina in Redondo Beach.

Redondo Beach public workers clean the pavement at King Harbor Marina in Redondo Beach to counter the stench of dead fish. Earlier today, millions of dead anchovies had washed up at the Marina.

    I love that second one, really beautiful and sad at the same time.

    Great Photos! I have to remember to start stalking the blogs again! On a side note… yet another reason not to like anchovies!
