The Weaver Guano & Fertilizer Corporation

Barge 17W Under Tow - click on picture to enlarge Although not as glamorous as the other Weaver Enterprises Divisions, the Guano & Fertilizer Corporation is consistently near the top in profits. However, 2002 was not a good year for the Corporation. Off the coast of Argentina a tow-line parted and a barge was set adrift. Efforts to recover the barge were a failure. It eventually grounded itself on the private beach of the exclusive La Bamba Resort and Spa. The entire 15 metric ton load of guano was unrecoverable. In addition La Bamba Resorts has filed suit against Weaver Enterprises and the Argentinian Government is threatening the levy of a fine for environmental damages.
