yeah, wardd. amidst any disaster is a group of people cashing in in one way or another. Some of the more unlucky fisherman are probably making more money towing booms around than they would have made on a few pots of shrimp. remember Forest Gump.
Seeking the uncommon in the common
A BBC documentary not released in US covered deep sea investigation in the Gulf that showed an 5sq.km oil plume suspended from surface to bottom.
United States: In a side-by-side laboratory study looking at both Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic seafood samples, news aggregator The Daily Beast profiled large shrimp, crabmeat and red grouper, and the results demonstrated no detectable amounts of selected polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons or dispersant ingredients.
Under FDA protocol, federal and state authorities each must determine that any patch of water is both free from oil and chemicals, both presently and in the near-term. Then, the state in question must submit an approved number of samples, where samples are given sensory testing (primarily, viewed and smelled) for oil, dispersants, or any type of contamination. From there, they are then sent to an FDA lab for confirmatory chemical testing.
"We are confident in the process for reopening and protective controls that were developed and agreed to," Margaret A. Hamburg, commissioner of the US Food and Drug Administration told The Daily Beast.
"However, we recognize that long-term efforts are required to ensure the safety of Gulf seafood, and remain vigilant in our continued collaboration with all state and federal agencies."
The positive results, independently compiled by The Daily Beast in partnership with the Environmental Systems Service, come at a time when local seafood vendors in the Gulf are calling for the American people to support the struggling economy.
Maybe call it marinated seafood??
Blackened shrimp, blackened red grouper and blackened crab, anyone?
People are always talking about the good old days. But I was there, and I wasn't impressed.
