MOBILE, Ala. (WPMI) A federal mandate to remove old, abandoned oil and gas rigs in the Gulf of Mexico is blowing up a lot more than just the rigs.
Undercover video obtained by Local 15 shows thousands of pounds of dead fish, mostly red snapper, floating to the surface after one of the controversial demolitions in the Gulf.
Good Lord, marine scientist Dr. Bob Shipp said, when Local 15 showed him the video. As a scientist, I think its abominable.

Yeah, and let a private citizen do something to wildlife without a permit and watch him serve jail time.
I realize that, in the short run, the red snapper are dead, but in the long run they’ll thank us.
Good Lord! What a misguided venture!
Red Snapper is good.
Not as good as pink snapper but this is callous wanton disregard for our natural resources!!
Typical Federal BS.
We throw our Christmas trees in the lake because we need to be rid of them AND the Crappie and Bass love the habitat.
So some ahole in DC thinks this is a bad deal and demands a tax on Christmas trees and higher fees for a fishing license in Tx
It’s a lose lose proposition for the folks that live there
Around here you can’t do pile-driving within 200 feet of the water ways that might have salmon in them during their runs. Seems they are worried about damaging their pressure bladders or something.
Of course a big truck hitting the pothole on the bridge creates as much vibration as a pile-driver 80 feet away, but that makes no difference in the regulations.

Oh great, now the price of red snapper will skyrocket. I’d better plan for an alternate for Christmas Eve.
And I would say not as good as Yellow Tail snapper. Sweetest tasting fish in the oceans.
A few simple clap charges before the big ones pop will chase the game fish away, not really rocket science. What I don’t understand is why they don’t just leave them there? Those underwater platforms are magnets for fish and help give them some cover.
Because anything man does is ugly to the eco-nazis. Even though these artificial reefs are a great boon to nature, becuas eit looks like man did it it must be removed. Their goal is to wipe out any trace that we existed (and most of us as well) and have the few of us who remain living back in caves.
I hate to say it, but I think you’re dead on with that.
Actually caves are out, as never in the plan at all. The exhalation of CO2 will likely be found to harm some wall-clinging lichen.
The plan going back into the late 70s is to allow buffalo to once again roam in huge herds across the Great Plains, while the politically connected elite live in mansions high in the mountains, scenic areas and other once Federal and National Parks.
The elite's servants will be housed in tepees at convenient locations with the bulk residing in their historically correct tepees on those same Great Plains where they can watch the buffalo pass by - hunting by servants is strictly forbidden and punishable by administering an on-the-spot death penalty.
Ya know I once knew a lady from New Orleans that went fishing one night with two guys she knew.
She came back with a red snapper....
[Those underwater platforms are magnets for fish and help give them some cover.]
For that reason I’d imagine these structures have recreational value for fishermen and scuba divers.
