The Lithuanian coast of the Curonian Spit near Klaipeda, forty kilometers from the Russian border, threw tons of dead herring.
According to the information posted on the website, the Lithuanian Klaipeda, fish for more than a kilometer stretch of ichthyologists found Klaipeda Sea Museum. According to his employee Remigijus Daylide, such mass death of fish of this species has never been observed.
Ichthyologists particularly surprised by the fact that local residents gathered herring into boxes and taken away, presumably on the market for sale. In this regard, members of Klaipeda offices of the Food and Veterinary Service immediately checked the marketplaces.
Renowned environmentalist Kaliningrad Felix Alexeev suggested: "mass death after spawning herring never was. But most likely it is a consequence of an emergency on the Fishing Vessel — torn trawl, nets with a catch in a storm swept. "
