Enough anchovies to top much of the world's pizza and Caesar salads have floated lifelessly to the surface in Redondo Beach, California's King Harbor, according to a local newspaper.
Officials say millions of the pungent, oily fish are covering the sea bottom in the harbor. They began rising to the surface Tuesday morning, the Daily Breeze in Torrance, outside Los Angeles, reported.
"We need to get rid of them," Sgt. Phil Keenan of the Redondo Beach Police Department told the paper. "This is going to create a terrible pollution and public health issue if we don't."

Fire, police and public works officials have yet to cite a definite cause, but Keenan said the fish appear to have died from lack of oxygen.
There were no red tides (oxygen-depleting algae blooms) or other obvious phenomena that could have caused the mass deaths, the paper reported.
"Yesterday, everything looked absolutely normal," Walter Waite, who lives at the harbor, told the newspaper. "This morning when I got up, there were millions and millions of them floating everywhere."
The temperature in Southern California is expected to climb into the 70s Tuesday, exacerbating the urgency of removing the scads of 6-inch fish scattered throughout the harbor.
