1000’s of baby fish wash ashore dead south of Cuba, “rare in Cayman Islands”; Seaweed used for shelter now soaked with oil (PHOTOS)

AP:

Thousands of tiny speckled fish have washed up on the shores of the Cayman Islands, befuddling environmental officials who say they don't know what caused the die-off.

The fish were found Wednesday scattered across Seven Mile Beach on the western shore of Grand Cayman Island, which lies in the Caribbean Sea south of Cuba.

John Bothwell, senior research officer at the Department of Environment, said... "Honestly, we don't know what might have caused it"...

He added that he believes the dead fish are white spotted filefish...

White spotted filefish are rare in the Cayman Islands, Bothwell said. In the past, people used their skin as sandpaper.


Alabama Press-Register:

The long thin fish are filefish, common in the sargassum mats, but seldom seen elsewhere.

Update:

FYI, oil sheen has been spotted off Cuba...

USF Dean says oil “within a few miles of the Jacksonville and Cuba coastlines”; “Oil continues to be a part of the loop current”

Oil reported just offshore Cuba; Forecast “clearly shows the oil moving southeastward”

I'm pretty sure filefish are dying in the Gulf...have seen reports of this from the coast. What caused it? What a silly question.

these baby fishies grow up and live only in the sargassum (seaweed) and are rarely seen elsewhere.

the sargassum travels the same currents as the oil/dispersant mix and is now toxic.
