Texas Fish Kill As Andy Warhol Painting

I’ve been getting a lot of search engine traffic today about a recent fish kill on Bolivar Peninsula in Galveston County, Texas.

The Beaumont Enterprise has a short article suggesting that it algae or low oxygen levels in the Gulf of Mexico that may be the culprit. It does not appear to be a red tide outbreak.

Here is a link to red tide in Texas. 

Here is a link to the “harmful algae page.”

The fish apparently washing up the most in Bolivar was the Gulf Menhaden. Above is a drawing of that fish. Here are some facts about the Atlantic Menhaden.

I’ve posted the picture three times to give it an Andy Warhol quality.   

Here is a link to the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Library. F.D.R helped saved this nation from both depression and war by use of the powers of government. Today, government may well be needed to solve America’s health insurance crisis.    

That has nothing to do with fish. Yet however much I enjoy writing about marine life, this is a political blog. 

Here is a link to other posts I have made about sea life.
