This question may seem off-topic but I am curious.Those rockets that aren't reusable let their stages fall and splash down on the ocean. Is there any news reported that they have killed some aquatic animals?

    $\begingroup$ Do seagulls count as 'aquatic animals'? KSC lore says they picked them out of the pad fences after shuttle launches by the score. $\endgroup$ Nov 18 '20 at 2:05

    $\begingroup$ In saying that, aborted stages would have more fuel and have it dispersed over a larger area which could be very deadly, especially if it was hypergollic $\endgroup$ Nov 18 '20 at 2:06

    $\begingroup$ @Organic Marble The aquatic animals like dolphins and other fishes are priortized but yeah you can also mention birds or terrestrial animals $\endgroup$
