    We have observed some (admittedly) unusual "fish kills" recently -- with dozens of dead fish of varying sizes and several differing species -- strewn here and there in pockets along Hollywood beach (Broward County Florida). Also noticed that the ocean water has had a greenish-yellow tinge to it near shore lately. Probably some of that "chemical dispersant" effluent coming around the horn of Florida from the gulf. Anyone care to capture that on film and show it to the world? Of course not...
