Yes I have been reading about this, all over the world sea animals are doing this. There was even a case where 20 tons of fish just washed up on the beach. When sea animals are killing themselves people need to wake up. Scary ty Dianne. Noted

This is awful. I wonder if all the debris from the Japanese tsumani has anything to do with it. I saw news coverage of sea birds in Hawaii that were full of plastic and metal bits.
