    Billions of dead anchovies are blanketing the sea bottom and floating on the surface of the water this morning at King Harbor in Redondo Beach, and officials are trying to figure out what happened. Fire, police and public works officials were on the scene, at this point working to remove the fish as quickly as possible. "We need to get rid of them," said Sgt. Phil Keenan of the Redondo Beach Police Department. "This is going to create a terrible pollution and public health issue if we don't." The cause is so far a mystery. It appears the fish may...
  • Beetles, Lentils and Anchovies

    Beetles, Lentils and Anchovies No, not some new dieting fad - what beetles, lentils and anchovies have in common is their value as indicators of ancient climate change. In a special issue of the journal Fisheries Research (Volume 87, November 2007), an international group of ecologists and historians have drawn upon archaeological material, tax accounts, church registers and monastic account books to present a picture of marine life in the North Sea from 7000 BC to the present. They found that warm-water species, including anchovy and black sea bream, once thrived around Britain’s shores – notably during the warm Atlantic...

    Millions of anchovies — a protected species in Europe — have died in northern Spain after an unexplained mass beaching, officials said Friday. The fish, all juveniles, were found stranded along large stretches of Colunga beach, 35 miles east of the port city of Gijon, a normally pristine seaside landscape in the verdant province of Asturias. "More than three tons have been found so far, and our main — untested — hypothesis at the moment is that they tried to flee from predators and accidentally beached," said Luis Laria, chief coordinator of a marine protection unit working with the government....

    Two outspoken lesbians became the first same-sex civil union in the United States are splitting up amid allegations of violent behavior. Carolyn Conrad, 35, asked a court in October to end her relationship with Kathleen Peterson, 46. Conrad also obtained an order of protection against her former partner, claiming Peterson punched a hole in the wall during an argument and threatened to harm Conrad's friend. Conrad believes her former lover is capable of violent behavior and she needs protection to prevent further contact. "All I want to say is that the civil union was a big source of pride for...

    For education and discussion only. Not for commercial use. JERUSALEM -- The army has barred soldiers serving in the West Bank and Gaza Strip from accepting pizza deliveries they did not order themselves, for fear the packages might be booby- trapped, the army said Wednesday. Last month, Israeli pizzerias began delivering to soldiers via an Internet site where people place the orders as gifts for soldiers. More than 4,000 pizzas have been sent, said Shimon Aharon, a British-born Israeli reservist who created the Web site. Ninety percent of the pizzas were sent by Americans, with the remainder coming from Europe,...
