Along the shore of the Salton Sea lie mounds of fish carcasses. Tilapia were introduced to the lake in 1950. Every summer the high temperatures react with the salt content of the water and kill off most of the fish. The dead fish create a massive amount of algae, which the remaining fish love. They repopulate to greater numbers each and every year only to perish once summer arrives. This is the Salton Sea's freaky man-made circle of life.
