Dead Fish Wash Up On Beach, Then Mysteriously Disappear

It’s a bad sign when a beach is suddenly covered with thousands of dead fish. It’s a worse sign when every one of those fish mysteriously disappears without a trace just hours later. Marine biologists and tidal experts alike are at a loss to explain it. What happened?



The mystery began on the afternoon of September 2nd, 2015. Beach-goers noticed that the Buddina beach in the Sunshine Coast metropolitan area of Queensland was suddenly covered with thousands of dead and dying fish. Longtime resident and frequent beach-goer Susan Sheard took a picture of the fish and had these observations:

I have never seen fish like that at Buddina beach. Some of them were still alive, flipping around and I threw a few back in the water. But there were too many. There wasn’t a smell, it was obviously very new. The water was clean, there was no pollution in them.

It’s a good thing there’s experts who can come out and examine things and explain what happened. Unfortunately, the fish completely vanished from the beach in less than 24 hours, leaving nothing but impressions in the sand and nothing to analyze.


Most people would blame the mysterious disappearance on the tide, but Owen Benedick from the Wappa Falls Observatory says that wasn’t it.


There are no tracks or footprints from birds, animals or humans picking up the fish and no bones, fins or remains at all.
