More mysterious animal deaths have surfaced, this time in a volcanic lake in the Philippines. Reports say that 800 tons, or 1.6 million pounds, of fish have turned up dead in a lake near the Taal volcano, which is located south of the capital city of Manila. Officials say the deaths may have been a result of sudden temperature change in the water.

ruh roh, I think we saw this in a movie. better get the grand parents and stay out of metal boats in acid lakes
What happened to the frogs?
A boon for the fish sauce industry...
The volcano probably released a lot of carbon monoxide into the water recently.
After all the “Yes you can” propaganda, they found out, “No, you couldn’t.”
should be good for the price of cat food!
Agreed, I bet there was a recent underground Earthquake that release a massive bubble of trapped CO2 into the lake, which resulted in the fish kill or a massive unseen algae bloom.
You are a national treasure. lol
A pocket of magma lies beneath the lake and leaks carbon dioxide (CO2) into the water, changing it into carbonic acid. Nyos is one of only three known exploding lakes to be saturated with carbon dioxide in this way, the others being Lake Monoun, 100 km (62 mi) away SSE, and Lake Kivu in Rwanda. On August 21, 1986, possibly triggered by a landslide, Lake Nyos suddenly emitted a large cloud of CO2, which suffocated 1,700 people and 3,500 livestock in nearby towns and villiges.
Still eating cheese, drinking wine and surrendering...
You...you... mean it wasn't global warming that did it? I'm shocked!!!!!

Years ago I read in a Ripley’s Believe it or Not, that about 2000 years ago a volcanic eruption in ancient Rome caused thousands of cooked fish to wash up on the shore. The locals ate them and a large number of people died.
in a volcanic lake in the Philippines... near the Taal volcano

The Taal volcano, still active, is situated in a lake near the lower left corner. Here it is in a radar image
Quick! Somebody get the chips and malt vinegar!

800 tons of fish ought to feed more than six seals.
“800 Tons of (Stinking) Dead Fish”
I saw nothing about the Dixie Chicks in this article.
Ha! That works too, but I was thinking more along the lines of this:
It has a...distictive odour on its own, but used in cooking is really good, in my opinion.
Well, I do know that sometimes lakes near volcanos can become saturated (from below) with toxic gasses escaping from underground, related to the volcano.
Imagine that, corn fed fish dying?
They dicovered that Michael Moore urinated in the pond.
