Dead fish, Yscloskey

Day 9: Another scary call in the wee hours of the morning from the fishermen in Yscloskey. It seems that millions of small food fish, bait to us laymen, have been washing ashore in this small fishing village that was totally wiped out by Katrina. This shows that the damage is coming further into the marshlands than had been anticipated. These are the bottom of the food chain fish that the larger fish depend on for survival. A picture here is worth a thousand words. More later today. I’m skipping over one post I had written because this one is so important.

Thanks to Public Eyes media and the Captain for this morning’s photos.
