It was announced that the number of sea cows that died in the first 6 months of the year in the USA was at the highest level.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission reported that 841 sea cows have died of starvation since January 1, due to the disappearance of seaweed beds.
According to the Treasure Coast Palm website, more than half of the dead sea cows were found in the Indian River Lagoon and the surrounding Volusia, Indian River, St. On the shores of Lucie and Martin, 312 were said to have perished in Brevard.
Most sea cow deaths occur during the colder months, when the bulk of the seaweed migrates to the Indian River Lagoon, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Research Institute said in a statement.
In the statement, it was noted that boats also had a great impact on sea cow deaths, causing the death of at least 63 sea cows this year.
The number of dead sea cows was recorded as 830 in 2013.
