Tons of Herring Found on Norwegian Beach


Norwegian beach carpeted with 20 tons of herring - San Jose Mercury News:

"OSLO, Norway -- Tens of thousands of dead herring carpeted a stretch of coast in northern Norway -- and then disappeared again.


The fish appeared on New Year's Eve, and it was speculated that predators might have driven a huge school ashore or the fish could have been washed onto the beach by a powerful storm that hit Norway on Christmas Day.


Herring is traditionally eaten for good luck on New Year's Eve in some cultures, including by many Scandinavians."

  1. Can we conclude it will be a year of very good luck for Norwegians, but maybe not so much for the herring? :>

  3. No, I had no memory of that. It's a bit eerie.
