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.

The volcano probably released a lot of carbon monoxide into the water recently.

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.

It's probably something like Lake Nyos in Africa:

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.[2]

Fertilizer!

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.

The Taal volcano, still active, is situated in a lake near the lower left corner. Here it is in a radar image

Ha! That works too, but I was thinking more along the lines of this:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fish_sauce

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.
