Now You Know the Rest of the Story
So, Danish commercial fishermen had a problem, which we will let C. Christophersen, U. Anthoni, P. H. Nielsen, N. Jacobsen and O. Tendal (Biochemical Systematics and Ecology, 1989, Vol. 17, pp. 459-461) enunciate. "During commercial fishery in the area of Clever Bank in the North Sea the catch is often contaminated with a bottom-dwelling invertebrate. The popular name of this among Danish fishermen is 'abelort' which literally translates into'monkey [let's just say 'poo-poo', this is a family web site]'. The reason for this unusual although quite descriptive name is the nauseating stench exuding from the organism and infecting the entire air-space surrounding the catch. Furthermore, the crew comes into close contact with the source organisms, a process which is allegedly often accompanied by a pronounced nausea."
