Alarmed by widespread reports of visibly sick, deformed seafood coming out of the Gulf of Mexico, state officials have closed area waters to shrimping this morning (April 23). The waters will be closed indefinitely as scientists run tests in an effort to get a handle on a situation that is fast becoming a full-blown crisis on the Gulf Coast.

The closures – including all waters in the Mississippi Sound, Mobile Bay, areas of Bon Secour, Wolf Bay and Little Lagoon – mark the first official step in responding to increasingly urgent reports from fishermen and scientists of grotesquely disfigured seafood from Louisiana to the Florida panhandle.

“This is what we’re doing to God’s beautiful Creation. And instead of feeling sad about it, we’re proud of it. God should just wipe us off the planet.”

Oh, WE aren’t a part of and the very purpose of “God’s beautiful creation”. Very revealing comment.

“wala”

I’m going to assume that you mean “voila”, which is a French word. Further, I am going to have to assume that you never finished school to the point where foreign language was required, which would have started in freshman year of high school, junior high school, or, these days, in the last year of “middle school”. :-)

I will also have to call BS.

The closure is in response to routine shrimp sampling that indicated the average size were smaller than 68 head-on shrimp per pound. [...]

And we’d like to clarify that the closures were not due to lesions being found on shrimp as we reported earlier this weekend and Monday morning.


Naturally occurring cold oil seeps occur around the world. The Gulf of Mexico is one big giant seep hot spot and has been for centuries.

Now how do you think the world's oceans have dealt with this for millennia?

I also wonder how much impact the asian tiger shrimp have had on the indigenous shrimp populations.

“Corexit is a DEGREASER. The oil doesn’t just disappear, it SINKS. If it had been left alone, bacteria would have taken care of it.

It’s not the oil that was the problem, it was the Corexit that was used to FOOL people into not SEEING it.”

Once you wipe your sink clean of the greasy film, and let the hot water carry it to the septic tank, the bacteria will digest the “mess”.

God should just wipe us off the planet.

If you feel that way, why wait?

Bump so I can laugh later at chessplayer and autumnraines’ comments. It’s getting chilly and I have to go throw more logs into the furnace. And FYI you two, the wood doesn’t scream in pain when I throw it in.

I hoped they had started to find shrimp with two tails.

Me too. And those no-eyed blind ones should be a lot easier to catch. Yum!

I want my shrimp to taste like Gulf shrimp.

Does Corexit sell a condiment size bottle?

Just so everyone knows, this is a reposting of a reposting.

The very first “network” to “report” this: Al-Jazerra.

So, all the leftists rags are now covering THAT report.

There is NO OFFICIAL FIRST HAND REPORT on this topic that is NOT foreign enemy propaganda.

Why are you linking to this trash, garbage, alarmist site? A few sea creatures with some level of deformity is not a new occurrence. Have you ever spent much time in the Gulf waters or around fisherman? This is much ado about nothing and the garbage logic behind garbage science is promoting ill-advised reactions. I’m surprised to see it linked by someone on FR?!?

“The reason is very easy to see: He didn’t carry any of the Gulf-Coast states in the election. “Retribution” is written all over this one.”

Thank you.

I strongly suspected that to be the reason but needed a second opinion as reassurance.

Thank you again.

Let me guess.....this is your own blog.

The first link from your “article” was a correction.

Ditto. I see food every day, and none is deformed.

I keep hoping that some of the Japanese radiation gets in the gulf and makes giant mutant shrimp, something like 3-4 count. Grill them babies up and get me some butter...

P.S. Just because someone didn’t take french, doesn’t mean they didn’t take a foreign language. Spanish was my foreign language of choice.

Jerk.
