    There's water flowing with and pushing the fish, so I'm guessing that this has a cause, but not a purpose.

    Most likely a school of fish known as a climbing Pearch, Anabas testudineus, native to southeast Asia, can crawl on dry land by dragging itself by the gills—and it can survive there for almost a week.

    That looks like they were dumped out of a fish stocking truck. It could have been an accident, or maybe the truck got stuck in the sand and had to dump part/all of its load. That appears to be a dry track in the middle of a desert area, not a wash, so I doubt surface water ever runs down it. And notice that all the fish are concentrated in one area, and they are all about the same (big fingerling) size.

    For topical application, only. Not to be taken internally or used in com-
    bination with other drugs or alcohol, except as directed by your shaman.
    Do not operate heavy equipment, unless you actually know how to.

    I bet the raccoons, coyotes, and other various scavengers came for miles.
