Thousands of alewife fish were found washed ashore on Lake Ontario this week a common occurrence, according to wildlife officials.

Longtime Wicklow Beach-area resident Rick Jones says he first noticed excessive cormorant activity on the weekend.

Then, on Monday, he says he discovered thousands of the fish washed ashore at Wicklow Beach, about 20 kilometres east of Cobourg.

I also saw this one year around the Pickering beach area. How often does this happen?

Growing up spending my summers at the cottage in Quinte, we used to see them all the time washed up at the Beach (Sandbanks) by the hundreds!
