There was a 'full house' in Valdez for the SERVS presentation

Another variable scientists and researchers need to consider for loss of herring is the hazardous chemical being sprayed on beaches, and that was just as likely that the herring swam through a pool of it: VHS? or a chemical poisoning that would cause bleeding through scales, spiraling downward as they swam (nervous system damage), no bladders (kidneys). Even if a virus is found, doesn't mean it is the cause of all that ails them.
Exxon admits to 25 tons of Inipol in water (a college reported 230 tons) *
(Excludes Corexit sprayed from the air; and experimented with on
beaches in July, 1989)
In 1989 Inipol EAP 22 was tested on Knight Island * on LaTouche Island and on Kodiak
In 1990 ... in Seward
/ Also testing in 1991@ __________ ?
such as I suspect the herring ran into in 1993 ? ... www.valdezlink.com/inipol/no.htm
Maybe we need to farm raise herring - and spray good sperm into breeding pools?
Give them glyconutrients & gamma globulin to revitalize herring breeding
There is some encouraging reports that gamma globulin will help autoimmune action on platelets, so on red blood cells, & other autoimmune issues, too?
Maybe we need to airlift herring and dump them into PWS? Alaska has laws against farming finned animals (fish), but we have an emergency here. (Or maybe we can have a herring hatchery (though none exist anywhere now)?
If the USA can airlift food to a starving Germany after WWII (plane after plane after plane), surely we can figure out how to restock / replace the depleted herring in Alaska's Prince William Sound!
How could we do
Idea from Mr. W, "How about from Togiak?"
Glycol BUTYL Ether ... 2-butoxyethanol is not without research
2-Butoxy Ethanol is on the Right to Know Hazardous Substance List because it is cited by
Coast Guard Vice Adm. Clyde Robbins, *
the on-scene coordinator for the spill cleanup
"What in the world are we doing testing this stuff now?"
Robbins asks. (Where is Clyde Robbins?)
Corexit has been around since 1972
It was considered for the EVOS cleanup, but then passed over
After some worker trials with it in July, 1989
RCAC Position: "NO dispersants to be used in Prince William Sound!"
The reason you see so much liver and kidney damage as a cause of death for cats and dogs *
is because this chemical is regularly used in home cleaning products - but non disclosed
Try finding how much of this poison is in your home cleaning products!
The law doesn't require companies to disclose to housewives, and you can really get the run around
if you ask Bissell for what's in their carpet cleaner ... or what's in Clean Shower *
There are some laws that need to be changed
