The Knightia Alta fossilised fish plates are from the Eocene period, 50 million years ago.
These fish were a member of the herring family. The fossils are found in the Wyoming Green River Formation where these fish swam in schools. Their mass mortality is thought to be due to blue-green algae poisioning.
