Stating that bluefish are abundant this year, Kartal said, “Last year, there were plenty of bonito, everyone ate them. But this year, there are no bonito.

That’s why acorns are rare.” he said.

Stating that the abundance of acorns can occur every 3-4 years, Kartal said, “The abundance of acorns does not happen every year like last year. This abundance happens every 3-4 years.
