No endangered species in Honolulu Harbor were hurt by the recent spill of 1,400 tons of molasses.  That's according to Dr. Keith Kawaoka, of the State Health Department, which is in charge of the cleanup. He says no endangered species were identified among the more than 26,000 dead fish collected after the spill.  Also, water samples tested from various points in the harbor and Keehi Lagoon, are showing improved oxygen levels and visually, the water looks better.  Matson Navigation Company is responsible for the spill and has promised to pay all costs to clean up, without raising customer rates.
