Gee Greg, I guess that surely answered my question. Thanks. We all now know
how to remove this stuff.

But now I guess I need to add to the question. How do you remove fish guts
from your camera. The ooze should leak under the shutter speed dial, under
the f/stop ring, under the focus ring. And once there, you can't get it
out! You'll have to send it to a repair person, who will savagely clean
your equipment. Dilemma! What to protect? A cleanable lens element, or
un-cleanable camera workings.

Thanks again for your answer to my question,
