Yahoo! News – Few Clues on Dolphin Deaths in Florida Keys

Yahoo! News – Few Clues on Dolphin Deaths in Florida Keys: “By Laura Myers

SUMMERLAND KEY, Fla. (Reuters) – Biologists are investigating whether sonar used in U.S. Navy (news – web sites) submarine exercises or red tide bacteria contributed to the deaths of more than 30 rough-toothed dolphins in a mass stranding in the Florida Keys last week.”

=================================

Sad and weird. It sounds like the opening of a thriller. Hopefully they will figure it out, though I didn’t think you could get decompression sickness unless you breathe compressed air at depth. Skin diving, which the dolphins do, can’t result in it. Unless I missed something.
