Apparently they didnt get the memo to eat Louisiana seafood in moderation.

wait, we were told by BP that the oil and the dispersing solvent were harmless to sea life and there would be no consequences. Were they lying?

It's only harmful to sealife, we can eat it without problem, just like the air quality around lower NYC just after 9-11.

Funny you should mention air quality.

This would have made national news for weeks had it happened up north.

When you put out a hazardous material fire in a plant that is on the River, where does the fire hose water run off go? If you ask any plant engineer the same answer. Oh the river has so much water its just diluted into nothingness. Multiply that statement times the number of blue diamonds and red triangles along the mississippi river.

The government and state of Louisiana have given the green light to eat gulf coast seafood. So it must be safe. Most of the seafood catch in Louisiana is shipped out to other parts of the country. I understand our blue crabs end up in the carolinas.


You would think with this kind of potential for exposure and revenue created by these plants, Louisiana and Texas citizens wouldnt have to pay any federal income tax.

And here I am going fishing tomorrow. Take solace in the fact that dolphins eat more seafood than me? I don't drink and live in the water too? Is my fish really safe?

We've found two of them washed up dead on the beach near the Gulfport Harbor within the last month. One was a very young juvenile and the other - found about a week later - appeared to be a still-born as he still had the umbilical cord attached. No doubt, something is going on that is outside of the norm. We called the Marine Mammal Institute and they responded, took the bodies, and are apparently performing different kinds of tests to determine the reasons for the deaths...

So the people on THT from New York, which is home to all the corporate HQs, the banks and the NY stock exchange, should skip taxes too?
