Especially canned fish. How much longer does the oil leak need to continue before the entire ocean is contaminated? Will the currents eventually spread the pollution to all ocean waters and if they start burning the oil will that increase the problem through toxic fallout???

Considering the "ethics" of all corporations, I won't be surprised to see seafood go down in price. Don't need to send trawlers out and waste diesel and all that...just pick them up and can 'em...

Not to worried about the prepping of seafood, as its not a staple in the Gypsy household. I live on the Upper Great Lakes, and the native fish are more than adequate for my minor fish diet. BTW fresh water fish known as "suckers" are very similar to tuna when properly canned, and trout can be used as a substitute for salmon (cousins) for those who consume them regularly.

Why is that? because they feed on the bottom of the lakes? tell me, do you eat shellfish,like shrimp,lobster,etc.? they eat worse.

Im another one that could eat nothing but fish and be perfectly happy. I love fresh, salt water fish. But because of the price and the copious amounts of poisons, I dont eat nearly enough. Tuna is a particular favorite of mine, even the canned, which is a staple lunch in in my house!

I think instead of stocking up on frozen and canned fish, might as well put some of that money into a aquaculter or aquaponics system and just raise your own. At least you could eat home farmed tilapia or the like every day and not worry about OD'ing on heavy metals.

If we can make it to the end of the summer I will be buying lots of these. Alaskan salmon, no salt added, and they should by then have bpa free cans. They tried before, but didn't know they had to request bpa free lids and well as the cans.

I'm the same, tuna is great. I keep plenty of canned tuna handy for a quick and satisfying sandwich.

Apparently tuna spawn right were the oil spill was, and were actually spawning at that time. This could have wiped out a generation or two of tuna, so stock up on canned tuna now if you are able.

I love seafood though. Nothing like getting a fresh catch, adding some butter and seasoning, and grill her up.

I just ordered some vital choice brand salmon (no salt added). I ordered 6 cans to try out. I will post if I like the taste better than bumble bee or not. If so I will wait for late next month when the new season of cans comes out and stock a bunch.

I tried out this brand without the added salt. Although It tasted OK, the bumble bee had a better flavor for some reason. Maybe it was the added salt. ha. I was out of salt, but my next can I will add a little bit and compare again.

Seafood of all types has been scarce for over a century. So scarce that it is considered a delicacy, although it used to be just another food when it was more common. I don't know any reason to stock the stuff when there are cheaper healthier meats available.

BP Seafood Snafu (http://www.wkrg.com/gulf_oil_spill/article/bp-seafood-snafu/1078917/Oct-12-2010_11-05-pm/) <<< see WKRG newscast video inside

by Jessica Taloney
Published: Tue, October 12, 2010 - 6:13 pm CST Last Updated: Tue, October 12, 2010 - 11:05 pm CST

BP's media event to show Gulf seafood is safe may do little quash concerns of those who are skeptical.

BAYOU LA BATRE, Alabama - One of BP's top officials put his message where his mouth is... or did he?

In an effort to show Gulf seafood is safe, Chief Operating Officer Mike Utsler enjoyed a seafood spread from the Lighthouse Restaurant in Bayou La Batre.

"The seafood in the Gulf of Mexico is the most tested seafood. It is safe. It is sound. I eat it everywhere I go almost everyday," said Utsler during a press conference on Tuesday.

But, the media event, which included a tour of a local processing facility, may do little to quash the concerns of those skeptical of the fresh catch. When News Five asked the restaurant where today's lunch came from we found out it isn't exactly what BP had promoted.

The crab claws, which were bought from a local distributor, were shipped in from Baltimore, Maryland. The mullet was caught in Florida. The oysters came from Texas and Florida. And, the shrimp, though it is local, was caught before the oil spill, then frozen and served up daily.

"Nobody knows what the long term effects are going to be," said a waitress at the restaurant. "If you have stuff that's from before the spill you know it's good or as good as it ever was, so that's what you'd want to be eating," she said.

The owner of the Lighthouse tells us they don't know when they'll start bringing in local, post oil-spill products, and they say BP never asked where their seafood came from.

Sill, BP insists their purpose is still the same-- to restore confidence in Gulf Coast seafood-- even if this event fell a few shrimp short of a cocktail.

great 15 min documentary, UK produced, about the state of the gulf fishing industry. youtube description:


journeymanpictures | October 25, 2010

October 2010

Are the beaches of America's Gulf Coast really 'open for business' after the BP oil spill? An intensive investigation uncovers a series of cover-ups in place of a long-term fix.

As the oil spillage on Florida beaches is merely covered with sand, jellyfish stained in oil wash ashore and fishermen experience numerous health problems. With Dr Riki Ott comparing these to "problems suffered by workers on the Exxon Valdez disaster", it appears that Obama's assertion that the disastrous BP oil spill fiasco has been resolved is far from the truth. Will the situation ever be rectified and most importantly, what are BP and the US authorities going to do?

Dr. Soto's following words in the Rense interview are possibly the most important that Gulf Coast parents could hear:

"Children are very susceptible, or I would say more susceptible, to the effects of the petroleum derivatives, because of their liver detox capability is less than an adult. Their brain is also developing, and their immune system is developing. So theyre gonna be affected several-fold more than an adult who is being exposed to the same amount of toxin."



"What an astonishing crime this governmentyet another astonishing crime this government has committed by clearing the seafood, obviously tainted, to be consumed by people," said Mr. Rense.

"They just dont care about human life. Theres no other way to define it. They dont care! Its all about cover-up, its all about money, its all about keeping them looking good, and keeping the people in the dark"
