All Things Considered, January 18, 2006 ·

Fish are sick and dying in many different rivers along the East Coast of the United States. Populations of some fish are down by 70 percent. Different diseases are afflicting the fish, and scientists don't know if there's any common source of their ailments. NPR's Elizabeth Shogren visits scientists who are looking at one affected species, the striped bass.

Myco makes the national news. Pollution, dead zones with a new twist - hermaphrodite rockfish, ( remember the he/she crab?) hormones and antibiotics in waste water.

Kevin-Keep posting. You are really sincere about your concern about the environment. The majority of the TF folks don't truly give a dam about nothing except their EGO's. Most of the posts on the Original Board belong on the BS board.

The answers to some of the East Coast's problems are described in chapter 3 of Rachel Carsons book Silent Spring. The title of that chapter is Elixirs of Death. She saw this coming back in 1962.

I want thank Tailing Loop as well for posting this subject on the Original Board

Keep up the posting guys
