She says "...but scientists have said that die-offs like this aren't so uncommon. The U.S. geological survey says that on average 163 such events are reported every year."
NO CAUSE FOR ALARM....EVERYONE MOVE ALONG....NOTHING TO SEE HERE....
II Peter 3:3 "...there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts..."
(that will say):

This one took place in the Baltic Sea, this article says it is because the poles are shifting:
Dead fish on the shores of the Baltic Sea
The one in Redondo Beach, California, was mostly sardines. Cindy by the Sea is the blogger that I had seen make a connection between sardines and the city of Sardis:
as soon as I went to Wikipedia, the first thing I read about sardines is that their name originated with the Mediterranean island of Sardis.
See cindybythesea blog entry on this here
But actually Wikipedia says it is from the island named Sardinia (Sardis was a city in the Apostle Paul's time in what is now the country of Turkey, on the mainland and not an island):
see Wikipedia article
There might be a common thread there...not sure though, I couldn't find one.
What I do find interesting is that animals are dying off in huge numbers, and the MSM is doing it's job of making people aware of the fact and then turning people's off switch to not pay attention to it because "it is normal"....but is it really? I personally don't believe it to be normal...and the fact that the book of Revelation gives one of the signs of the tribulation to be 1/3 of the fish dying should make us pay attention.
Rev 8:8 And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;
Rev 8:9 And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.
People who saw what happened in the gulf of Mexico said the ocean had the appearance of blood from all the oil, and that the oil was like a ruptured vein spewing into the sea. I think it is possible, and I don't think it wise to pretend that it is normal to have huge waves of animals dying off this way. We need to keep our eyes fixed on our Creator and Redeemer. He said these things would happen and that they would be for signs of His return. The mockers will say it isn't so, and that it has always been this way, and that these abnormal occurances are perfectly normal. Do we believe "them"?...or do we believe God's word?
Jesus said to watch and pray.
Mar 13:31 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
Mar 13:32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.
Mar 13:33 Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.
