On Schedule: Collapse Of Ecosystem

Catastrophic Collapse Of Pacific Ocean Food Chain Found In Government Survey

Back on October 6th we published a story on ANP in which we asked "Has Earth Arrived At The Threshold Of Catastrophe?"within which we reported there had been 380 different 'mass animal death events' in 2017 alone. These 'events' go on top of 3,298 KNOWN 'mass animal death events' that had happened between 2012 and 2016 according to the website End Times Prophecy, which has been keeping a running log of such events since 2012. 

Now 3 weeks later, the 'mass animal death events' are up to 403 in 2017, a jump of 23 events in 22 days, and as we reported in that October 6th story, according to scientists and experts quoted in this October 2nd story over at Live Science, a 6th mass extinction may be inevitable for our planet Earth with warnings from them our planet may have arrived at the 'threshold of catastrophe'. The 'mass animal death events' per year has been mind-boggling:

In the year of 2016, there were 556 KNOWN 'mass death events' in 81 countries. In the year 2015 there were 828 known 'mass death events' in 96 countries. In 2014 there were 651 known 'mass death events in 76 countries. In 2013 there were 798 known 'mass death events' in 93 countries. In 2012 there were 465 known 'mass death events' in 67 countries.

And while the Live Science story doesn't mention Fukushima radiation at all as a possible reason that our planet is heading towards extinction, as we read in this story over at ENENewsand has been confirmed by the Seattle Timesthe Daily Astorianand NOAA, a recent government survey of the numbers of fish now living in the Pacific Ocean are absolutely stunning to scientists, one who claimed "We pulled that net up, and there was not a thing in it...this is really different than anything we've seen before"

Other scientists actually questioned their equipment with claims they've never hauled a net through the ocean looking for salmon and found NOTHING! As we see in the excerpts below from several different sources, scientists say something is now happening in the region they've never seen before, and they are alarmed. From the ENENews story:

Seattle Times, Oct 9, 2017: Scientists survey Pacific Northwest salmon each year. For the first time, some nets are coming up empty — Scientists have been hauling survey nets through the ocean off the coasts of Washington and Oregon for 20 years. But this is the first time some have come up empty… In a report on their trawl survey, the scientists logged some of the lowest numbers of yearling Snake River spring chinook recorded since the survey began in 1998. Coho numbers were just as depressed… This year’s bizarre survey results all started with The Blob…

David Huff, NOAA Fisheries, Oct 9, 2017: “We were really worrying if there was something wrong with our equipment… We have never hauled that net through the water looking for salmon or forage fish and not gotten a single salmon. Three times we pulled that net up, and there was not a thing in it. We looked at each other, like, ‘this is really different than anything we have ever seen.’ It was alarming.

Brian Burke, NOAA Fisheries, Oct 9, 2017: “Every year is different. But this year popped out as being really different… Not just a bunch of normal metrics that point to a bad ocean year, but the presence of these things we have never seen before, really big changes in the ecosystem. Something really big has shifted here.

Daily Astorian, Sep 4, 2017: Warning signs for salmon… The numbers of young salmon caught off the Oregon and Washington state coasts during an annual federal survey cruise this June were among the lowest recorded in the past 20 years. In fact, numbers were low across nearly all the species researchers regularly catch or observe — from birds like the common murre to forage fish like anchovies and smelt…  

NOAA, Sep 2017: Ocean conditions for salmon headed to sea this year are very poor, according to recent NOAA Fisheries research surveys… NOAA Fisheries research surveys off the Pacific Northwest this year turned up among the fewest juvenile salmon of any of the last 20 years, an indication that many of the young fish that migrated to the ocean did not survive… Catches of other species such as smelt, herring, and anchovy were also low… This year researchers noted that chlorophyll, which is a barometer of the plankton that helps sustain higher trophic levels, was at its lowest levels in 20 years…

As we reported on ANP back on March 4th of 2017we've been watching a slow-motion disaster movie unfolding before our eyes with the total decimation of the Pacific Ocean food chain at hand. Some of the recent story titles we linked to in this May 23rd of 2017 ANP story proving that the food chain was continuing to deteriorate included:   

ALARM: Record die-off of marine life along West Coast — Huge numbers washing up on shore… “This is just the tip of the iceberg” — Several types of animals found dead — Hemorrhaging from brain infection 

Brain-rotting toxin killing huge numbers of marine animals on California coast — Die-offs skyrocket over past week — Expert: “It’s worst year we’ve ever seen” — Mass deaths of sea lions, dolphins, birds — Officials warn outbreak is spreading
Mass die-off ongoing along US West Coast — TV: “It’s just not clear why all the marine life is washing up like this… Reports coming in every day” — Experts: ‘Unknown’ organisms eating away brains, hearts… New infection never seen before 

“Most catastrophic fisheries collapse in history” expected along West Coast — Official: “This is a nightmare, I have never in my life dreamed that it could get this bad” — Threat of “coast-wide fishing failure”  

And now we get the latest US government study that proves what the alternative media has long been warning of, the food chain in the Pacific Ocean is in complete collapse with story after story coming out over the last several years that suggest a massive cover up has been ongoing.  Should we look at this food chain collapse as a sign of bigger and more dangerous things to come?
