Potomac Bass are Becoming “Intersex”

Wow…. this is a bit frightening. I used to fish for largemouth bass on the Potomac when I was a kid living on the east coast.

The fish, smallmouth and largemouth bass, are naturally males but for some reason are developing immature eggs inside their sex organs. Their discovery at such widely spread sites, including one just upstream from the Woodrow Wilson Bridge, seems to show that the Potomac’s problem with “intersex” fish extends far beyond the West Virginia stream where they were first found in 2003.

Hm…. This is right in the Republican’s back yard. How long until they pass the “In-defense of same sex fish amendment?”

The potomac river is beautiful. It’s really fun to fish for bass right in the nations capital. The of polution on the east coast is really a problem. I’m amazed by the amount of destruction in the area since I was a boy. I can’t even look at the Chesapeake anymore.

The sad thing is that this is only going to get worse.
