Gulf oil spill

by on Sunday, March 11th, 2012

The oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico has had lasting damage in so many areas of life there. In 2010 Deepwater Horizon spewed billions of gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico and the clean up alone is still ongoing. However, scientists have become increasingly concerned by the deformed shrimp and fish with lesions. That does not bode well for our fishing industry at all. It will then trickle down to us whenever we shop for seafood or go to a seafood restaurant, because the prices will be going up for sure.

The Eco system in the gulf is at great risk now and we all know that our government is going to do their best to hush it up. I hope that at least one of the news channels will report the story and let the public know that this is happening. I fear that the online news stories are just not going to help the situation. I suppose though that we shall see what happens over the next few months. Only time will tell. In the mean time, I think I will stock my deep freezer with the regular seafood that we eat here at home. Shrimp and fish can be put up easily.
