Oil Spill Might Impact Crab Season

I can see it now... even the downtown industrialists are now screaming "NOOOOOOOOOO!"

After a summer of poor fishing, the Golden Gate's fishing fleets now are facing a new crisis, less than a week before the commercial crabbing season is set to begin.

Bunker fuel from the Cosco Busan spill not only has drifted right over many of the prime fishing spots in the main bay but also into the Pacific, where it is impacting prime salmon and crabbing water before it washes ashore along the Marin coastline.

Commercial boats were scheduled to set their crab pots this coming Wednesday for Thursday's opener that traditionally supplies Dungeness for the holiday demand. Because of the fuel spill, that opener might be in question.

From Chronicle article.

This is seriously fucked. Goddamn fucking foreigners crashing their fucking leaky ass piece of shit boats... like dumping the lead-laden Chinese death toys isn't fucking enough! Hanjin must be Korean for "dumbfuck."
