  2. I don't know but they were tons of them everywhere. They're so tiny. Do you know what they are? Why do they go die on the sand?

    If I recall, they're "Alewife" and they do this every year after they make little Alewives. They don't necessarily die on the beach but get washed up by the overnight tide. Most of the beaches on this side of Lake MI have a couple weeks every year when they're closed down because there's so many of them scattered around.

  4. I wonder if they are smelts or maybe sardines? I don't know why they are all over the beach.

  5. Really? That sounds so awful, but I'm sure Mother Nature knows what she's doing.

    Thanks for the info because it really made me wonder to see all those tiny fish dead everywhere.

  6. Jo, when I first saw them I kept wondering if they were sardines. Now we know they're Alewives. You learn something new every day :-)
