Health officials and a deputy district attorney have joined to urge the Board of Supervisors to ban fishing within a half-mile of the city’s Hyperion line that pours sewage into Santa Monica Bay.

“It is claimed that the city markets are flooded with fish taken near the sewer outlet,” The Times says, “and that they have fed upon sewage until they are unfit for food and spread disease among fish-eaters.”

Question from 2006: Is it safe to eat fish caught in Santa Monica Bay?
