This oil spill makes me sick to my stomach.   I am worried about the fishing, crabbing in the future.   I crab and fish near the Indian River bay in DE       I wonder if  its possible the oil could make it up this far,   I wonder if the fish will be safe in the future and what steps they will have in place for us to make sure what we eat is safe.....     

Anyone have any input on this?Huh

I can tell you that any of the oil that does make it that far will be FAR less than is put in the water up there every weekend by boat engine emmisions,spills pumping gas,carelessness,bilges pumped out and people that just don't care,any thing that makes it that far will be just a very light sheen on the water.

I'd be more worried about what comes out of the Delaware River than the Gulf stream.

You mean all those species that we have protected from the evil commercial fishermen and the public having a chance at eating them for the pleasure of the very rich to go play with and catch kill and release?

I would think it would effect the epipelagic zone where fish and their young hide in grasses that may be covered in oil.

Jack,it's going to be one of those wait and see deals,I have 2 friends who take their boats to La after stone crab season for tunnys and Kings and of course right now they are idle here,BP did send them 1 check apiece but from what I am hearing that may be it,talked to a friend who took his 43 fter and crew over to work for BP and as of today it's been 28 days and not a penny,he is housing in a motel and feeding his crew and they havn't even cut him a check for expences.

I don't know who your friends are working for but the guys down in Grand Isle and Fouchon are getting paid regularly with no problem.  Anything from 500.00 to 1000.00 a day depending on the company and size of the boat.

They signed a contract with BP and the boat is getting $1800 a day when they do draw a check.

Good for them. I'm glad they're getting a paycheck.  How many men are on the boat, what are they doing and where are they?

So for no affect at all,just need a little rain here to make things better,to many varmits like sea turtles,redfish and bonnett head sharks.Looks like this oil is going to affect a lot of my friends up and down the state a lot worse than it will us.

RD,

Being on the west side of the Bend, I will be in position to be the guinea pig on the crab tasting front. Tongue
I have a lot of experience, having caught and ate crabs from behind Ft. McHenry, near the Baltimore harbor area in the early seventies.
That Bend area you crab in, I have read that it is the largest crab sanctuary in the entire state. Not to mention the oysters and fish.
I will make a point of stopping in Hunts Oyster bar, and have a couple dozen with a cold draft this week.
Good luck to you

Oil is way to dangerous without proper suits and respirators. I dont think i will paticapate in our oil season.By signing any sort of contract with bp you waive your right to file suit.My family owns hernando beach seafood fl. We fish 5 boats for different species throughout the year.Oil season sounded okay until we found out it can affect your digestive system and make your lungs bleed.

LOL,a dose of oil will go straight through you so fast it wont have time to affect ant thing.

That is false,their contract for commercial fishermen does not have a no futher liability clause in it.

On the news tonight they talked about oil plots being somewhere 3300 feet below the surface........... how in the world are they ever going to be able to get all this cleaned up it almost seems impossible.
