Thunderbird Said: "If it's an impending disaster or radiation... why just Sardines?"
That is exactly what we need to know! In our species, Homo sapiens, there are many pathogens that affect only our species and not others, therefore whatever is going on with the sardines--since they are a prime corner stone of our Oceans entire food chain and a "Canary” or warning indicator as to the health of the Oceans--it is essential that we monitor them or we will be no more than the proverbial ‘Ostrich with its/our head stuck in the sand’ attempting to avoid the reality--whether that reality is good, bad, just part of nature, and of concern or not; whatever is taking place it would/is something we need to know to be safe rather than sorry.
So, the common sense and the logically correct question and course of action is to ask, “Why just Sardines and, more importantly, to find an answer just in case it is serious?
We have just this one little “living” spaceship upon which we live, we call her Mother Earth, if we do not monitor and help take care of Her in our best interest She will not take care of us, then where shall we go?

Sardines, next too blue-green algae, are the base of the Oceans food chain, therefore without the sardines there will be neither whales...nor anything else left alive between sardines and whales. If the Japanese Government does not do a thorough investigation as to the cause of this die-off, this could easily prove to be not only short-sighted and foolish, but a dangerous if not a deadly choice for all of human kind; if there is something wrong in the ocean(s) the people, the world needs to know now, not tomorrow, for by tomorrow it may be too late to prevent a global disaster that could well make Fukushima, on a World scale, look like child’s play.
