why do you think it smells so badly?
The gut flora necessary for a carnivore's digestion is what causes the odor. It's actually worse in some other carnivorous species.

And before anybody goes on about direct discharge, I can remember when marinas smelled like cesspools. there -is- a reason they make us have some way to store our **** on board
There should be zero discharge in confined harbors for obvious reasons. There is zero scientific evidence of the need to be 3 miles offshore.
