Acres of Dying Stripers

Video of thousands of dead and dying stripers in the Atlantic Ocean off Oregon Inlet, N.C.

The commercials appear to be throwing back smaller ones in order to keep the biggest ones.

This should boil the blood of anyone saving their vacation days to go striper fishing next season.

Here’s some discussion on the situation.
