An entire port town in Japan has been left reeking of dead fish after nearly 200 tons of stinky sardines washed up on its shore.
The massive shoal started washing up at the fishing port of Ohara, on Japan's west-facing North Pacific Ocean coast, on June 3 and quickly turned the sea red.
Since then the bizarre phenomenon gone has rapidly got out of control.
There are now so many dead fish that locals in the town in Isumi City, Chiba Prefecture, are having to truck the rotting remains to landfills. And yet still more dead sardines keep washing up on shore.
Reports suggested that locals are not only finding the sight disturbing, but the huge amount of dead fish has created a smell that's becoming unbearable.'Already, more than two full days into the bizarre occurrence, the smell has to be almost unbearable, but the people of Ohara still have no idea when they will be able to get rid of all the sardines.

We’re now on the verge of needing a bailout in Cyprus, but perhaps more significantly, a bailout in Spain.”If one looks globally, we’ve got people like David Cameron, and importantly, President Obama, who are basically saying, ‘The euro project must be saved. It must be saved at all costs.’ ....“For that to happen the Eurozone has to turn into a state, and a state that effectively has a Fed.Farage also added: “All I can tell you is when I look into the eyes of the leaders of Europe, and as a leader of a group in the European Parliament I do get eyeball to eyeball with them, when I look into the eyes of these people, frankly what I’m seeing now is madness, absolute, total and utter madness.
