"Everything's dead!" Marine mystery in Canada's Novah Scotia intensifies! Now everything is dying!

Photo's Eric Bruce Hewey


  • First it was dead Herring
  • Then Lobster and Scallops
  • Now it's everything

A marine mystery is confounding residents of southwest Nova Scotia who are watching thousands of dead fish, starfish, crabs, clams, scallops and lobster wash up on the shore.
Residents of Plympton, a small community in Digby County, say they have been finding dead herring on the shore of St. Mary's Bay for more than a month, but recently other marine life has started washing up dead.
Dead fish have also been found on the shores of the Annapolis Basin.
"We started finding starfish, crabs, flounder.
We found ocean perch and then yesterday we started finding scallops on the beach and like I said everything's dead... we'd like to know what's going on," said Karl Cole.
"It's just really sad to see, you know, hundreds of starfish, shellfish.
I grew up clamming here so to come to your hometown and see so much death on the beach is really sad," said Eric Hewey.
Hewey took photos of the beach and posted them to his Facebook page Monday, writing: "Herring, Lobster, Bar clams, Starfish and more.
No idea what caused this.
Likely it could be a natural disaster.
Please try not to jump to any conclusions until we get a response from Natural Resources, or another credible source."
In less than a day his post has been shared almost 11,000 times and garnered more than 1,000 comments.
Many people are ignoring Hewey's admonishment and suggesting their own theories about what happened.
But there are still no answers. On Dec. 15, Fisheries and Oceans Canada announced that tests on the dead herring had produced negative results, meaning no infections or infectious agents had been detected in the small, silvery fish.
It said it would continue testing and warned consumers to only buy herring from licensed harvesters until they figure out why the fished died.
Residents say the department is aware of the latest developments and has taken samples for further testing.
CTV Atlantic reached out to the department for comment on Tuesday, but did not receive a response.

Tom, I'm with you. We can't let the poorly educated masses drag us in to an improperly spelled apocalypse. And don't get me started on grammar...

Should it be SEE ICE or ICE SEEN?

Tremors are caused by those big worm things that slide through the dirt. I don't think they like water.

I forget...were the sea and animal die offs foretold in the old testament or the new? And that rampant greed and MUCH evil stuff...I might be wrong, but seems to me I heard tell that shits been going on for a while now...how can you tell it's THIS rampant greed and MUCH evil stuff and not some in a different time?
OH, and quantum computers will soon be available for home use, so maybe if we just sit tight for a while, we can all get one and research these changes together...

Ahh, Melanie...the dangers of reviewing someone's spelling and grammar...
I ask that YOU remember that re-reading your work for quality is critical. I'm trying to be polite here as you've covered up this important piece of news with your lack of quality checkS or checkING? on your work. Thank you and, I hope in future you will ensure all the "i's" are dotted and the "t's" ARE CROSSED and spelling is correct.

But the water flows past Nova Scotia first, then past Labrador and Greenland.

Just read a climatologists findings that loss of sea Ice on pole causes increases in methane gas. Wonder if that is starting to have widespread effects?

Methane gas release perhaps?

For all those who wish to chastise the people mentioning the spelling of Nova Scotia. Personally, that is where I am from. So, if you are going to write a story of my home province, please spell it correctly. As for this story I have seen numerous stories regarding it.I'm sure if the situation were happening in your area, you might want them to spell your home correctly.

Going off a tangent.someone told me of a lot of deaths of marine biologists and scientists , all worked for marconi . Worth googling , i was amazed at the amount of deaths linked to one compamy , a lot were young . One wonders what happens opening a can of worms , i feel we are living in a asylum , we like to point out things but do nothing ..why is that ?

Clear cases of EMP and/or Methane release because of the Earth changes caused by Nibiru in our inner solar system...no it will not hit us but expect magnetic roiling of the inner core of the Earth resulting in Methane release and EMP...poleshift.ning.con
