Commercial Fisheries Brace for the Worst and Help in Cleanup Effort

Friday, April 30, 2010

At least ten state and federal wildlife refuges are in the path of the river of oil gushing into the Gulf of Mexico. The Gulf Coast is one of the world's richest seafood grounds, teeming with shrimp, oysters and other marine life and commercial fishermen are bracing for the worst.

As the oil gush continues to spread, some fisheries are trying to harvest as much as possible while also lending their boats to the cleanup effort.We speak to Sal Sunseri, co-owner of New Orleans' and America's largest supplier of oysters, P&J Oyster Company.  We also hear from New York Times reporter, Clifford Krauss, who is following the story in Louisiana.
