I thought they told the local Game Warden from the Department and Fish and Game that they shut this operation down after some chemical leak last Winter that killed most of the aquatic life in the tanks? Call me crazy, but doesn't it seem like this experiment failed? Love the aquarium and people that work there. But, I don't understand why they are permitted to expose all the aquatic life to all the risk. I can certainly make the connection to the New Power Plant and subsequent push for desalination and its huge appetite for electricity. In this nightmarish scenario, Redondo Beach families are the sacrificial lambs. The lambs get to breathe in tons of particulate matter from a toxic plume located in the center of their dense community. Why aren't they doing a study related to storm water recapturig?
