Sep 2, 2009: Do Fishermen Poop in the Woods?

Oyster World

Yes, but they shouldn't.

The AP reports that the Washington State Department of Health closed 400 acres of commercial shellfish beds on the Skokomish River (which drains the southern flanks of the Olympics) after they found human waste, left by recreational fishermen, in the bushes lining the riverbank. Apparently competition for fishing space was so fierce that fishermen were reluctant to abandon their posts to walk up the bank to the portable toilets.
