At first glance, it appears to be a massive oil spill. However, it's the biggest group of anchovies seen in near-shore waters in three decades, according to scientists at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego.

It's unclear even to the team at the Scripps School of Oceanography why the school has come this close to shore in this specific spot. Members of the Scripps Marine Vertebrate Collection have collected samples for study to see if they can find a reason.
