    Boutla-wa!? damn I use to eat fish from there!
    Well i know alot of the irrigation canals run into there and the pesticides seep in. we use to see the crop duster all the time while fishing there.

    By the way are you saying there's still fish there?? We use to get double-digit corbina there like crazy!
    At least until the salinity got way too high.

    Just an example:

    Before and after eating fish from the salton sea, you decide.

    Within moderation....also not for pregnant women and young children..........

    I would think that if eating fish from the sea (or anywhere) gives you botulism, the officials (city,county, state, scientists, biologists, reporters) would post sign, notify the public, and/or even close the lake to prevent such a thing???????????

    Dont worry... You wont catch anything to eat from there at all..

    Except for a Talapia spawn and die off, there is nothing in that water at all..

    Dead zone, not even 'one bar' on your Verizon Phone!!!!
