The Associated Press reports on four workers who had to be rescued after they fell into an eighteen foot tank of fish feces.

"One of the farmhands was submerged in what Dion described as a sand-and-feces mix, while the other three had their heads above the sludge, he said.
Dion said rescue workers cut a hole in the side of the tank at the farm, which raises barramundi, a fish farmed as a replacement for grouper."

Later it was reported that it wasn't fish poo that the workers fell into, but rather the much more politically correct, fish bacteria. Either way its the kind of story that makes one appreciate one's day job.
