This story ran recently in many Florida newspapers.


The article includes some humor, saying that "This is a story about sex,
supply and demand, global trade, corruption, government regulation and one
of the ugliest sea creatures in Florida."  (obviously written to try to get
people to read the article)

and that it "a long and lumpy invertebrate that looks like a cross between
a diseased zucchini and an overinflated eclair."

But it may be a more serious issue than that.   Cheers,  Doug
