Mass death of herring in Kvænes, northern Norway, found on the morning of New Year’s Eve. Estimates say there’s 20 tons of dead fish. No one knows why they’re dead (or rather, why they’re beached), but possible causes include washing ashore during a recent storm, being chased by predatory pollock, or getting trapped by a current.
