State wildlife officials have banned fishing along a two-and-a-half mile stretch of the Petaluma River because of an oil spill Monday.

An old tugboat was being chopped up for scrap metal when it leaked an estimated 200 to as much as 600 gallons of oil.

So far, no sickened wildlife has turned up.

Anyone who has a boat which has been damaged by the spill is eligible to file a claim with the US Coast Guard.

  1. Ken Porter says:

    Have the investigators enlisted the aid of the Bay Model in Sausolito to understand how the spill will spread?

    The Bay Model is open to the public and I highly recommend this as a place to go check out for a weekend outing.
