Samples have already been taken to a laboratory to try to elucidate the causes of this rare phenomenon, which occurred over the weekend: dSchools of fish and around 60 dolphins stranded on three beaches on the Ghanaian coast, authorities and local sources said on Monday (April 5th). “Arriving on the beach, the team noticed a large number of small pelagic fish [qui vivent en pleine eau] and demersal species [qui vivent près du fond] washed up on the beach “, said Michael Arthur-Dadzie, director general of the National Fisheries Commission, in a statement.
“According to the first observations, the fish showed no lesions or injuries”, he added. The cause of the death of these fish and cetaceans remains a mystery.
“We counted around 60 dead dolphins and small fish”, for his part declared Samuel Obeng, a fisherman, to the press. “It’s strange, and you can’t really say what happened, probably on the high seas, that rare species like this were washed up here.”
