In most of coastal Louisiana, there are fish cleaning stations next to most boat launches, and the standard operating procedure is to toss the carcasses in the water. At the busier launches, it is obvious that the carcasses are quickly recycled back into the food chain by abundant mullet, catfish, drum, pinfish, sheephead, toadfish, crabs, etc., etc.

I don't see any environmental issues with the practice and in the locations where it is allowed, the children love to sit by the cleaning stations and catch the mullet, pinfish, ladyfish, croaker, catfish, etc. Been known to let the children fill up the live well before heading out.

A few fish carcasses is okay. But in a relatively closed environment it"s not so good. Imagine throwing a mullet carcass into an aquarium. Then imagine throwing in 100 fish carcasses.

You can spoil the cove pretty quick. Till the next flood.

I enjoy feeding pelicans, heck I love teasing them and watching them dance. But, too many fish carcasses can be bad for any site. It cannot hurt to bag your fish carcass and throw them into the the trash. Or use them in a garden.

( I would not eat a tomato grown in a fish compost unless it were composted on the side first. Just me though)
