Molasses Mishap Causes Sticky Shark Dilemma

Last Tuesday, September 10th, a leak was discovered in a pipeline in the harbor of Honolulu. 233,000 gallons of treacle, also known as molasses, rose up through the sea—causing major pollution and killing hundreds of fish, with thousands more expected to perish. The high concentration of molasses makes it difficult for the fish to breathe causing the fatalities, state health department spokeswoman Janice Okubo reported to the Associated Press.
