The Menhaden Fish Factory

In the sleepy town of Reedville VA, located near the southern end of the mouth of the Potomac River the main industry is the Menhaden fish factory.

During processing-hours (i.e. all day long) it smells like dead fish irregardless of which way the wind is blowin’. The locals say you get used to it, but we haven’t.  So we depart Reedville, and it takes days for the scent of decay to dissipate.
