I didn't see the washed up dead Dolphins except on TV, but I did visit local beaches and see for myself the thousands of smaller fish washed up and deposited at a high water mark that meandered along the beach in both directions as far as the eye can see.

I had never seen that before in my life. Something has obviously gone very wrong.

Temperature change was blamed at first, but more recently suspicion has settled on a couple of hot brine discharges from Adelaide's much trumpeted new DeSal plant.

If so, someone screwed up big time.

Thank you Adelaide that was informative, and sounds a lot more like it.
