BP Oil Washes Up on LA. Beaches After Hurricane Isaac, Matt Simmons Was right

(NO LINK NEWS)   A mat of tar and a concentration of tar balls that washed ashore on some southeast Louisiana beaches after Hurricane Isaac prompted the state to sharply restrict most fishing in a portion of state waters.

The waters extend a mile off a roughly 13-mile stretch of coastline from Port Fourchon eastward to just west of Caminada Pass.

Recreational rod and reel fishing can continue in those waters but commercial and recreational shrimping, commercial and recreational crabbing and commercial fin fishing is closed there. The closure was announced Tuesday evening. The source of the tar hasn’t been determined.

Earlier Tuesday, the Coast Guard said authorities were investigating about 90 pollution cases in Isaac’s wake, including a leak at a defunct oil terminal that led to the oiling of several pelicans.

In addition to this closure, certain areas are still closed to recreational and commercial fishing due to the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Maps of the areas still closed to recreational and commercial fishing are posted on the LDWF website at www.wlf.louisiana.gov/oilspill.

    Between Death in the Gulf, and the Fukushima endless

    and desired future. It is Over, except for the harvest of Souls.

    your comment is pointless and has nothing to do with the article, Elijah. Myths and fairietales do nothing to encourage inteligent, scientific solutions for stupid, scientific mistakes. These are avoidable situations, but big business isn’t willing to accept the costs and responsibility for prevention and safety. Man created the problems, and only better men can fix them.
