What’s With All The Dead Beached Whales?

The number of beached whales that have appeared on shores in our area have reached double digits.

But why?

Could it be climate change? Part of evolution? Is there something in the water?

We could probably debate all day. Its believed that the only way to get to the bottom of it is to spend a lot of time, money and energy.

The conditions of the sea would have to be examined along with all of the poor, dead creatures that have been found.

It’s terrible either way you slice it.

Just a few days ago, a prehistoric Atlantic sturgeon was found on the shores of the Chesapeake.

On January 21, 2023 a post was shared to the Delmarva Times Facebook Page.

The caption read:

“The Atlantic Sturgeon is very very rare. This 37 inch fish is a true member of the dinosaurs. It has no scales only rows of hard plates called scutes. A bottom feeder it will eat almost anything including clams, mussels, and dead fish. Under its chin are four whiskers called barbels which are used to sense the bottom for food. The mouth is hard and bony with no teeth.

This is a small one, researchers have found them up to 160 lbs in the rivers and tributaries of the Chesapeake Bay and can weigh over a thousand pounds in other parts of the world. Overfished to the point of almost being extinct they were put on the endangered species list 2012.
Historical records from Jamestown suggest the colonists would have starved to death if not for the plentiful sturgeon in the Rivers. So the next time you buy a hundred dollar tin of caviar think about the Sturgeon it came from.”
