As a kid I watched the birds and crabs eat the whales that washed ashore. They did a very thorough job of cleaning up the mess. The bones eventually broke up on the rocks and were ground down by seasonal swells and such. Seemed like nature had done that sort of thing before.

It has a wonderful bouquet of fish and shrimp that has been thawed and then disgested by maggots for a week in a plastic kitchen garbage bag. It's aroma has been distilled to a disturbing and yet repulsive mash of liquified bacteria infested flesh. With a hint of sea salt spray.

You should be in perfume sales, with your "bouquet" pitch.

You may also qualify to sales pitch wine, with your "bouquet" concoctions. Someone will buy it.

Actually, the owner of a bagoong company just happened to pass by me, when he immediately rushed over and paid me to allow with to swab a culture sample as a flavor enhancer to his bagoong

I think those responsible should have been cited for polluting the environment and obstructing traffic....very careless indeed!
