Oil Spill Found On Shrimp Seafood In Newly Opened Gulf Waters

The boat was trawling in newly re-opened waters north of the Deepwater Horizon well site when it hauled tar balls in with its shrimp. Due to this boat’s disturbing catch, NOAA (The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) will perform trawls in the same area, and probably sample the shrimp for seafood safety. Based on their findings, the NOAA may consider re-closing the area. In the meantime, piles of shrimp sit spoiled on a nearby dock.
