    Its a sticky situation.

    How do you clean 1400 tons of molasses out of the harbor?

    According to this article, it looks like they will just have to try and experiment with it because what works for oil spills will not work for the molasses. They are not even sure why it is killing the fish because molasses is not toxic.
