    Depends on who you ask. The obvious response from the official agencies is "yes". Personally, I wouldn't go near it with a stick.
    Enjoy your sushi.

    It's rather disturbing, yes. But you never know what it'll be at southern seafood restaurants another 5 years from now.

    Why chance it? Are you hoping to gain superpowers from eyeless, tumor-riddled mutant seafood?

    This is the most recent article I can find. Seems they'll be opening to fishers July 15th.

    I'd never go near the stuff myself. Just pondering about whether they'll be used through means of legalities to sell or serve later on. Perhaps a lot has been served already. The thought is unpleasant.

    Was this done before? Perhaps a story I've missed.

    They already need to pay billions of dollars (something like 20x their yearly profit). We might want to increase the amount they will have to pay back, however the likely effect will be their bankruptcy.
    Another option would simply see the american government obtain BP's full royalties - their profits will have to be given to the american govt...forever.

    Delightful. Now all that remains to be seen is the effect of this on the higher level carnivores, fish and seabirds etc. (and, dare I say it, humans, if the FDA manages to push it through...). Mm, biomagnification.
