It appears as if humans weren’t the only ones badly stressed by the recent cold snap.

Hundreds of striped bass were found dead this week in the Blackhall River, a tributary of the Connecticut River in Old Lyme, in what state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection officials believe was a natural die-off related to the extreme cold.

Five blue crabs also were found dead.
