Gulf seafood deformities alarm scientists

Eyeless shrimp and fish with lesions are becoming common, with BP oil pollution believed to be the likely cause.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_VVyPiV5xdY

New Orleans, LA - "The fishermen have never seen anything like this," Dr Jim Cowan told Al Jazeera. "And in my 20 years working on red snapper, looking at somewhere between 20 and 30,000 fish, I've never seen anything like this either."

Dr Cowan, with Louisiana State University's Department of Oceanography and Coastal Sciences started hearing about fish with sores and lesions from fishermen in November 2010.

Cowan's findings replicate those of others living along vast areas of the Gulf Coast that have been impacted by BP's oil and dispersants.

Gulf of Mexico fishermen, scientists and seafood processors have told Al Jazeera they are finding disturbing numbers of mutated shrimp, crab and fish that they believe are deformed by chemicals released during BP's 2010 oil disaster.

Along with collapsing fisheries, signs of malignant impact on the regional ecosystem are ominous: horribly mutated shrimp, fish with oozing sores, underdeveloped blue crabs lacking claws, eyeless crabs and shrimp - and interviewees' fingers point towards BP's oil pollution disaster as being the cause.

Eyeless shrimp

Tracy Kuhns and her husband Mike Roberts, commercial fishers from Barataria, Louisiana, are finding eyeless shrimp.

"At the height of the last white shrimp season, in September, one of our friends caught 400 pounds of these," Kuhns told Al Jazeera while showing a sample of the eyeless shrimp.

According to Kuhns, at least 50 per cent of the shrimp caught in that period in Barataria Bay, a popular shrimping area that was heavily impacted by BP's oil and dispersants, were eyeless. Kuhns added: "Disturbingly, not only do the shrimp lack eyes, they even lack eye sockets."

"Some shrimpers are catching these out in the open Gulf [of Mexico]," she added, "They are also catching them in Alabama and Mississippi. We are also finding eyeless crabs, crabs with their shells soft instead of hard, full grown crabs that are one-fifth their normal size, clawless crabs, and crabs with shells that don't have their usual spikes … they look like they've been burned off by chemicals."....

But the Goobermint says that all is well in the gulf. How can this be? It must be a lens flare or something.


I'd laugh if this weren't so terrible.

Yeah I'm sure the oil spill had nothing to do with it, probably resulted from all of the raw sewage the corrupt Mexican government dumps straight into the ocean right? Riiiiiight yeah3

There's money to be had.

And fracking doesn't harm the surrounding well water either.

"The water was like that (catching on fire) before we showed up" - Range Resources.

This will continue until the streets of America are lined with the entrails of BP/Range Resources/ etc. executives.

Now go back to watching American Idol, slaves.

I live on the Florida panhandle.
Before the BeePeeeeee gusher when we bought shrimp, you could find different sizes, heads on and heads off if you wanted.

NOW?
When you go to a seafood store you can't find but x-tra large and large and ALL with HEADS OFF.

MY TAKE ON THIS?
They are removing the deformed heads BEFORE selling them so the people can't see what is REALLLY happening.

Pin worthy!!!!

There's a story behind every person.
There's a reason why they're the way they are.
They aren't just like that because they want to.
Something in the past created them.
And sometimes it's impossible to fix them.

Candle RIP Karen and Galaxy.

I've never been a huge shrimp fan but now I'm wondering if it's too late to stock up on Alaskan salmon before the effects of Fukeshima produce similar results. What's a good link nowadays for monitoring radiation levels?

its not on msm so...

Seafood markets report improving sales

Consumers who may have shied away from gulf seafood after the BP oil spill, are apparently buying it again.

Seafood markets that experienced a drop in sales, due largely to perceptions about the safety of gulf seafood, say their business is recovering nicely.

The owners of both Desporte's and Quality Seafood in Biloxi say sales are strong, on the verge of returning to pre-oil spill levels.

It could be simply the passage of time, a change of attitude among consumers or perhaps some persuasion from the "Gulf Safe" seafood campaign.

Seafood dealers say, "Whatever the reason, customers are back."

"Aren't these beautiful?" A worker at Desporte & Sons Seafood said, as she placed large, fresh shrimp into a plastic bag.

Shrimp and oysters are on the menu for Gary Koederitz and his wife Susan.

"Buying seafood for Good Friday," Koederitz said.

The Louisiana residents are stocking up on shrimp and oysters and crabs before heading to Destin, FL. And while they may have had concerns about eating gulf seafood right after the oil spill, those fears are gone.

"I don't anymore. I'm hoping that after a year, year and a half, the gulf is big enough that it's diluted anything that was dumped in there," said Koederitz.

"I love seafood. I'm a cajun from Louisiana and I've been eating seafood all my life," his wife Susan added.

One year ago, concerns about seafood in the wake of the BP oil spill contributed to a 30 percent plus drop in sales at Desporte's.

The "Gulf Safe" seafood campaign set out to erase those fears. And it seems to be working.....
