Dorchester Bay Fish Kill

Out on a run this morning, my dog tried to hurdle the barrier to the boat launch by Malibu. I assumed at first it was to get at the gulls but then realized they were snacking on several dozen fish carcasses. As best as I could determine,  they were cod. Anyone else see anything similar in the harbor? Didn’t have a phone with me but will bring one tomorrow in case they are still there.

Very interesting. Perhaps someone dumped them when they saw EPO on the lot and later washed ashore?

You have to consider these may be "Racks" after being filleted and dumped. 

That had t occurred to me. I assumed the birds did all the work. That’d be better as long as it was commercial.

You never know.  Some poor bastard from Dorchester may have went out out of Rhody or South Cape and got Cod.  All legal.  Filleted at home and instead of dumping the racks in the trash he chose to recycle.

Well, the gulls certainly appreciated it. My dog was certainly pissed that I didn't let him roll in them.

:laugh:
