2 Million Fish Dead Maryland Chesapeake Bay waters. 2 million fish have been reported dead in Maryland on the Chesapeake Bay by low temperatures. Cold weather seems to be the culprit of the recent onslaught.

A spokeswoman for the Maryland Department of the Environment stated that the cold weather was to blame. According to research spot fish are known for being susceptible to chilly water temperatures. The spokeswomen also said they have migrated to the upper bay waters.

This abnormally large number of dead wildlife just be added to the list. Recently there have been numerous reports of mysterious bird and fish mishaps. The reason is still unknown.

Other examples of these mass animal deaths can be seen in New Zealand where officials are trying to discover how hundreds of snappers died, along with reports from Brazilian authorities about their recent finding of sardines dead from the port of Paranagua. Some experts find it hard to believe that all of this could be from record low water temperatures.
