This is great! Maybe we will finally have some new varieties of seafood. I doubt it has anything to do with oil. Oil is as natural as trees.


The oil isnt good for the wildlife, but I think that it is the dispersants that BP used that is more harmful than the ecosystem.

The dispersants that BP used are illigal in the US, but BP used them anyway, so that they could save money with the clean-up process.

BP has spent less money on this cleanup than they make in a single day.

I don't understand...

I just saw a commercial where a BP spokesperson said everything was OK in the Gulf of Mexico!

They can't lie on TV, can they?

Seafood processors say last year's brown-shrimp season was good, but the white-shrimp catch was off. Oyster beds not hurt by floods of fresh Mississippi River water released to keep the oil offshore or to relieve record flooding last year have seen strong harvests. Some areas where the harvest was delayed in 2010 because of concerns that oil tainted the shellfish have seen weaker harvests.
The 2011 brown shrimp harvest in Louisiana was the largest since 2007, at approximately 37.7 million pounds, according to a preliminary analysis in the The Times-Picayune in New Orleans in January.


duh, the oil turned the white shrimp into brown shrimp

The fear here on the Gulf coast is that most of the oil has settled to the ocean floor, and when the next hurricane comes, it is going to stir it all back up and dump it on our beaches.
