That isn't new. Several years ago they had the same thing happen in Santa Cruz Ca.. We took my lovely aunt from NYC to the beach and the dang dead anchovies were all over the place and they stunk and the water was oily from them. Of course it is very sexy to have anything die enmass these days.

If I'm not mistaken that was when we both lived in SJ, I remember the Red Tide you speak of (late 60's)!

Yeah, happened a few times since then as well. So Cal had one a couple years ago as well. Always anchovies or mackerel.

First (or Easton's) Beach in Newport Rhode Island had "Red Tide" for decades. At certain times in the year, you'd see red plankton (or some kind of seaweed) floating in the water. It got all over the beach and over anyone who swam in it.
