    REDONDO BEACH, Calif. (AP) - Millions of fish have died in a Southern California marina and a spokeswoman says they apparently suffocated.

    Staci Gabrielli, marine coordinator for King Harbor Marina in Redondo Beach, says boaters awakened Tuesday to find the anchovy-size silvery fish surrounding their vessels.

    Gabrielli says it's believed the fish moved into the harbor late Monday or early Tuesday to escape a red tide, a naturally occurring bloom of toxic algae that can poison fish or starve them of oxygen.

    Gabrielli says high winds apparently kept the fish from leaving the harbor and they all crushed up against the harbor wall, where they used up the oxygen and suffocated.

    Gabrielli says there are millions of fish and they're so thick in some places that boats can't get out of the harbor.

    Where were the Evoinmentalist groups Huh?? Theyre Supposed to protect fish and wildlife? You see Evoinmentalist groups were never attended to protect anything. All theyre against is Business and to promote liberalism. Exactly why they dont want you drilling for oil in our nation. So wheres the protection of the fish?
