“It's very strange that so many should be killed, and in such a confined area.
There is nothing in the scientific literature for this kind of
mass mortality among octopus.”
Since January 2, 2011, thousands of dead octopus
have washed up on a 5-mile-stretch of northern Portugal
beach in a place called Vila Nova de Gaia. That same week between
December 29 and January 4, thousands of birds, millions of fish and crab
were found dead from the Northern Hemisphere to the Southern Hemisphere.
The unprecedented large die-off of the Portugal octopus provoked authorities
to speculate it is a disease and the public has been warned not to eat
the dead creatures. Tissue samples were sent to Lisbon's veterinary
lab for testing.
