Hagfish are again in the news, featuring in a lawsuit filed in Oregon. A boat being launched with its mast up contacted power lines and the resulting blackout killed the chilling and aeration pumps at a nearby commercial hagfish operation - the same outfit whose truck dumped its cargo onto a state highway earlier in the year. The power outage killed 8 tons of hagfish awaiting export to Asia (primarily South Korea). The company, AA Seafood, is suing the boat owner for the resulting financial losses.
