Neurotoxins Cause Fish Die-off in California

Scientific researchers say a deadly neurotoxin is the reason for a massive fish kill in Southern California.

Millions of sardines died in King Harbor in Redondo Beach, CA, and researchers say the fish tested positive for domoic acid and ultimately died from oxygen deprivation.

Scientists say the fish were washed into the marina by strong waves, and the domoic acid caused the fish to become disoriented and swim chaotically.
