    Default gahh... ''Gulf seafood deformities alarm scientists''

    ''Eyeless shrimp and fish with lesions are becoming common, with BP oil pollution believed to be the likely cause.


    New Orleans, LA - "The fishermen have never seen anything like this," Dr Jim Cowan told Al Jazeera. "And in my 20 years working on red snapper, looking at somewhere between 20 and 30,000 fish, I've never seen anything like this either."

    Dr Cowan, with Louisiana State University's Department of Oceanography and Coastal Sciences started hearing about fish with sores and lesions from fishermen in November 2010.

    Cowan's findings replicate those of others living along vast areas of the Gulf Coast that have been impacted by BP's oil and dispersants.

    Gulf of Mexico fishermen, scientists and seafood processors have told Al Jazeera they are finding disturbing numbers of mutated shrimp, crab and fish that they believe are deformed by chemicals released during BP's 2010 oil disaster.

    Along with collapsing fisheries, signs of malignant impact on the regional ecosystem are ominous: horribly mutated shrimp, fish with oozing sores, underdeveloped blue crabs lacking claws, eyeless crabs and shrimp - and interviewees' fingers point towards BP's oil pollution disaster as being the cause.''



    ...Anyone see this article?

    Anyone else feel like presenting the bill to BP for this? Loss in income for fishing companies, loss of livelihood for several employees no doubt, higher prices for the consumer, due to scarcity and extra health inspections, not to mention perhaps an introduction program of multiple healthy specimen of the species affected and of course continuous water control checks and ongoing purification?
