Title: Looming Crisis: Officials Close Gulf Waters to Shrimping As Reports of Deformed Seafood Intensify
Source: Stuart H. Smith
Date: April 23, 2012

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.

[...] I am deeply saddened but not surprised by the shrimping closures. I applaud the courageous move by state officials to put consumer safety first. There’s no doubt in my mind – as I’ve said for months on end – that seafood coming out of the Gulf of Mexico is unfit for human consumption. [...]

Title: Waters Closed to Shrimping

Date: Wednesday, April 25 2012, 12:05 PM CDT

The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources has temporarily closed some local waterways to shrimping [...] in the Mississippi Sound, Mobile Bay, areas of Bon Secour, Wolf Bay, and Little Lagoon.

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.

PREVIOUS REPORT: Area waters close to shrimping, April 21: [...] The closure comes after scientists found smaller than average shrimp and lesions. They say the plan to test the water and will continue to run samples until the waters are re-opened. There is no set time when the waters will be open for shrimping again.

Title: Shrimp Without Eyes Found in the Gulf of Mexico
Source: WSAV-TV
Author: Kris Allred
Date: April 24, 2012

[...] fishermen and scientists have found horrifying creatures in the Gulf of Mexico…including blue crabs without claws, shrimp without eyes and fish with lesions. [...]

And it’s not just deformities that has researchers worried. It’s also the drastic decline in sea life populations, and that decline’s impact on the food chain.

In the continental United States, more than 40 percent of seafood is caught in the Gulf, making the levels of mutations in the region’s sea life a major cause for concern.

So does this mean that humans should stop consuming seafood caught in the Gulf? Well, the answer remains unclear. [...]

But here is what one fisherman says…”We’re continuing to pull up oil in our nets. People who live here know better than to swim in or eat what comes out of our waters.”

    There was a time when the Gulf was like some picture of paradise, and immensely full of healthy sea and bird life.
    There was nothing better than a swim on the beach there.
    I can't believe how ugly we have made this planet over the course of my lifetime.

    girlfriend's cat recently keeled-over and died. It began to run around in a panic then instantly died at her feet. Needless to say, she was more than distraught by this unannounced demise of her long-cherished friend. She had the cat for many years, so we thought it only natural. Well, she brought-over what was left of her cat's canned food for mine to use. Her cat only ate shrimp; refused anything else. Now I'm reluctant to feed it to mine.

    I noticed the food manufacturer ground-up the shrimp and plopped a little one on top of the meal. The one they used (within all the cans that were opened) had this tiny shrimp and appeared to be a visual confirmation of quality, for the person feeding the cats. Have to say, it was a nice touch. I'm just curious as to where they sourced the shrimp; if it came out of the Gulf of Mexico or South East Asia.

    I'm keeping the cans that haven't been opened…

      So sorry to hear about your girlfriend's cat. One of my fears for both the Gulf toxins and Fukushima, is that contaminated seafood is going to wind up in the pet food supply and poison our pets. I wouldn't put it past the large operations to knowingly sell contaminated diseased seafood to the pet industry. Not when there's a buck to be made.

      I realize to some, this may seem unimportant in the greater scheme of things, but to animal lovers, it is a serious concern. It's another sad aspect of this unfolding tragedy. For myself, I've basically given up seafood since I can't trust that it's safe to eat.

      By the way, I'm on the west coast, and my previously healthy as a horse mixed breed dog recently had a cancerous tumor removed from his thyroid. I strongly suspect exposure to radioactive iodine courtesy of Fukushima, but of course, I'll never be able to conclusively prove it. And that's what the nuke bastards count on.

      Perhaps it is not ANYONE whom would harm the Earth, but consistantly, it is the corporations.

        Exactly it will continue and continue. I can't help thinking the corporations will be thrill when the gulf is totally polluted. Think of the money they will save when dumping and polluting are no longer prohibited. When the last polar bear goes to a zoo, there will be no reason to have laws to protect the enviroment..they can pollute freely. About this time they will develop some plastic synthetic food source grown in labratories that will "nourish" us…no need for earth, water, air it will be manufactured and sold to us….The masses can change this but we have to ORGANIZE!
        Organize or perish like the gulf.

    After the Gulf BP Disaster, along with ongoing concern for conditions in oriental fishfarms, I wrote to Red Lobster, asking for the sources of seafood used in my favorite dishes. I further requested that the source for seafood be clearly set forth on future menus. The reply letter was a testimate to the "It's all good" mentality of corporations in the face of ecological disaster. Since I love seafood, the Red Lobster restaurant, I have been limiting my post-Fuku selections to Atlantic fish and lobster, avoiding anything from the Gulf or the Pacific. But I know in my heart that I'll soon become a strict vegetarian in order to avoid some of the bio-accumulation hazzard. I have to recognize that thanks to the nuke industry, radiation is now everywhere, and that staying healthy means avoiding the meat and the seafood I love.

        It's quite possible… apples from Chile do pretty good until they travel and land in dusty stores in Japan and the USA … The surface exposure gets them some hot particles. The apples tested last summer at the Japanese motocross race had a few hot particles of cesium, far below Japanese fruit. I speculated the transit and sitting in Honshu stores gave them external radiation.

        But if fruits are soaking in fallout isotopes in Honduras then that is bad news indeed. No place to run, no place to hide. Lots of bananas from Central America… The naked ape race is losing options for southern migration in this new threat to mankind… The Fallout Age.

          Hi Sickputer. I think it would be really important to know whether the radiation is picked up in the source countries, in transit, or on the shelves. If we can find out where the hazards are, we might be able to avoid them to some extent.

          I'll be very surprised if Honduran melons are picking up radiation at source, but I guess we have to wait for evidence of one kind or another.

          Hehe – it would be ironic if bananas actually became "hot" from Fukushima radiation. I can imagine the last pro-nuker saying "I just ate a prawn from Fukushima and it was no more dangerous than the banana I had for breakfast".

          sonnen.blum.239 – are you around? Can you confirm or disconfirm the Honduran melon measurement bit – five times background?

    This is not the fault of the oil, but of the corexit, which thinned the oil and allowed it to penetrate into creatures, where the oil wouldn't have by itself …

    Corexit is the problem here … This is the only difference in this oil spill, than hundreds of other oil spills in the world …

    They dumped more than 100,000 gallons into the gulf to cover up the extent of the spill and to break down the oil which has changed the chemical composition of the oil characteristics ….

        Here is MORE BREAKING NEWS OF BP SPILL.

        from MARKWW found on the Internet

        You'll find that not all is well with the marine life in the northern Gulf of Mexico, especially Louisiana. “Although the oil has stopped flowing from the wellhead, the Gulf oil spill is not over,” Doug Inkley, senior scientist for the National Wildlife Federation, told the New Orleans Times Picayune.

        A recent NWF report claims there are six key areas still at risk due to the spill —as well as a variety of creatures, including bottle nose dolphins, a variety of sea turtles, brown pelicans, and Atlantic blue fin tuna. It’s still too soon to assess the long-term impact on much of the region’s wetlands, but the NWF is asking Congress to pass the Restore Act, which would dedicate fines and penalties against BP and other responsible parties toward long-term restoration of the Gulf.

        As for the seafood shipped from the Gulf across the country, the verdict is still out on how healthy it is. Seafood processors say last year’s brown-shrimp season was good, but the white-shrimp catch was off. Oyster beds unharmed by the floods of fresh Mississippi River water—released to keep the oil offshore or to relieve record flooding last year—have seen strong harvests. Areas where the harvest was delayed in 2010 because of concerns about oil tainting the shellfish have seen weaker harvests. A variety of studies and reports detailing just how much of that crude oil still lurks in both the ocean, and the fish,…

    http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2012/04/2-years-after-the-bp-oil-spill-is-the-gulf-ecosystem-collapsing.html
    BOTTLENOSE DOLPHINS

    The most visibly at-risk creatures are the bottle nose dolphins, which the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has labeled in “poor health” since the spill, thanks to an “unexplained mortality event.” Stranded dolphins have been showing up on beaches from Louisiana to Peru since the spill, suffering from lung and liver disease and abnormally low levels of hormones that help with stress response, metabolism and immune function.

    “They are at the top of the food chain in the Gulf, perhaps even more than we are, because they eat whole fish. They consume everything,” said George Crozier, retired director of Dauphin Island Sea Lab in Alabama. “That creates a situation where they might be bio-accumulating any toxic's in the food chain.”

    Because they breathe air, the dolphins are also likely to have inhaled toxic fumes, in addition to have swum through oil.

    CORAL

    Travel seven miles from the site of the spill, dive a mile deep and, according to a study cofunded by NOAA and BP, the corals lining the ocean floor are dead and dying and coated in “brown gunk.”

    Extensive damage to the coral became apparent eight months after the spill. Many thought the bulk of the ecological damage would be limited to close to the surface, but thanks to the depth of the spill and cold temperatures, plumes of oil…

    ZOOPLANKTON

    It’s not just the charismatic sea creatures that suffered; scientists have confirmed that hydrocarbons from the spill have entered the ocean’s food chain through zoo plankton, small organisms that drift through the ocean and are used as food by shrimp and baby fish.

    The contaminated zoo plankton serve as food for small fish and shrimps, thus acting as “conduits for the movement of oil contamination and pollutants into the food chain.”
    BUGS

    Insects have not escaped scrutiny, or the oil.

    A Louisiana State University entomologist says that since the spill, her studies show falling numbers for a variety of bugs.

    Linda Hooper-Bui of the LSU Agricultural Center collected insects about 20 or 25 times last year at 45 sites, from Cocodrie to Breton Sound, Louisiana, using both vacuums and nets. She has been studying the same sites since 2009, and has discovered that insects and spiders hit by the spill have declined in population. She reports seeing growth only in some species, while others are still low in numbers, or even collapsing.

    Giant cannibal shrimp more than a FOOT long invade waters off Gulf Coast Tiger shrimp are native to Asia though there have been more sightings in recent years
    Prawns are known to grow to the size of lobsters and eat smaller shrimp

    enoughalrady45 says: We have messed up the balance of nature in the Gulf. That is my theory.

    Chemical and biological degrading agents to oil and it's by products…?
    It only makes sense that there will be devastating consequences
    to the basic balance and chemistry of everything in the Gulf.

    The explained deformities of sea dwelling creatures
    and fundamental effects of their basic lipid metabolism
    alone, is just numbing to imagine on many levels,
    but makes sense to me… they are very sick.

    We might have destroyed the ecosystem of the gulf and taken away the pleasure of a dip in the ocean but look at all the pople arond the world who have ground massively rich from the oil in the gulf. We have given our land so that that England can be richer, hmm wonder whose idea that was?
    I use to travel to the Gulf every year to enjoy the atmosphere, the pleasant sea side attractions. Gulf seafood. I always thought I would retire there.
    Well BP I know you said you would make everything right with all your money but I guess you can't buy prestine…that's a gift and you people grabbed it from all of us and made a profit by selling us the oil you got out of the ocean…destroying everything that lay in your path from oil to the gold you wear…. take a trip to Japan!
