Masked Bandits Make Problems for Shellfish (Number of pages: 2) (Publication Size: 254KB)
|Description||What is the connection between raccoons and shellfish? In 2009, the state Department of Health (DOH) closed several shellfish growing areas in Port Orchard Passage after finding high levels of bacteria. One Kitsap Health inspector tells Ecology how he discovered a large raccoon population and why the Kitsap Public Health District thinks this is a much larger issue that needs to be addressed.|
