Though the title says North America, this story fits at all our oceans. We need to find out what's with our oceans, and find a solution!! : The massive numbers of dying starfish, tuna, oysters, and salmon, but also the massive numbers of dying birds and marine mammals are growing faster and faster. For example, the total population of Blue fin Tuna has dropped 95%!!! Mexico already banned fishing on them, America should be next! Marine birds disappear completely in the pacific north west! A mysterious disease has cost life of approximately 80% of all starfish! Sea lions, Dolphins, Whales, all wash up on shore distressed! All kinds of fish like herring, salmon, sardine, anchovies are found dead thousands at the time! One of the possible explanations is the nuclear disaster according to a Australian captain: “After we left Japan, it felt as if the ocean itself was dead,” Macfadyen said. “We hardly saw any living things. We saw one whale, sort of rolling helplessly on the surface with what looked like a big tumour on its head. It was pretty sickening. “I’ve done a lot of miles on the ocean in my life and I’m used to seeing turtles, dolphins, sharks and big flurries of feeding birds. But this time, for 3000 nautical miles there was nothing alive to be seen.” In place of the missing life was garbage in astounding volumes. “Part of it was the aftermath of the tsunami that hit Japan a couple of years ago. The wave came in over the land, picked up an unbelievable load of stuff and carried it out to sea. And it’s still out there, everywhere you look.”
