Many residents of Union Bay witnessed the “runaway” oyster floats December 19 and 20.

Many residents of Union Bay witnessed the “runaway” oyster floats December 19 and 20.  But that was just the beginning of the mess created by the shellfish industry in Baynes Sound after our last storm.

A resident of Denman Island took these photos at Henry Bay of the millions of plastic styrofoam beads that now litter Baynes Sound after the storm.  These bits of styrofoam will only sink and further pollute our waters.  It is tragic but these styrofoam beads can be ingested by birds/fish/baleen whales, etc. which will fill their stomachs and the same time cause them to die of starvation.
