Mass havoc, resulted in death of millions sea creatures

Temperature caused Freezing weather in the UK resulted in deaths of countless sea creatures.

Massive numbers of starfish, crab, mussels, and lobsters have been carried away by to the North Sea coast of UK.

The change in temperature affected several places at same time Kent and Norfolk also suffered the deaths of many sea creatures. This mass mortality can also be observed in Yorkshire where millions of crabs, starfish are lying on the coast.

The recent change of 3C temperature occurred in last week might be the reason behind such mass havoc at the seashore. The rough water isn’t suitable for sea creatures to the survive that’s why they have been wiped along with sea waves.

Most of the creatures are invertebrates, there is hardly a fish can be spotted along with dead lying creatures. “Bigger sea creatures like dolphins are much of a swimmer and can save themselves by swimming away whenever such change takes place” said Lynam.

All the creatures have lost their life excluding, some lobsters. A search team of Yorkshire helped in rescuing those left lobsters, they found every last living lobsters along with local fisherman and collected them in buckets. The aim is to free those lobsters when the sea weather comes back to normal.

Lynam told that ”They want to promote the fisheries by helping the fisherman as the sea is very important to fisherman and it’s worth saving the few surviving animals so they can breed late which would result in good reproductive stocks later”

Hunstanton also suffered loss in large number where many sea creatures were found dead the Norfolk Wildlife Trust’s Holme Dunes reserve warden Gary Hibberd said he had seen crabs, squat lobsters, starfish, sea anemones, sea cucumbers, sun stars and whelks.

On account of such mass mortality Dr Lissa Batey, senior living seas officer at the Wildlife Trusts, said”disasters like this are natural, they take place without any warning sign there is nothing we can do to prevent such havoc, what we can do is help out these creatures to ensure their protection when something like this takes place in future”

Holderness inshore waters are already designated as a Marine Conservation Zone (MCZ) and the government is due to announce a consultation into more MCZs this year.
