Eyeless shrimp and mutant fish raise concerns over BP spill effects

Eyeless shrimp, fish with oozing sores and other mutant creatures found in the Gulf of Mexico are raising concerns over lingering effects of the BP oil spill.



On April 20, 2010, an explosion aboard the BP-leased Deepwater Horizon rig killed 11 people and spewed an estimated 4.9 million barrels into the Gulf, in the worst offshore oil spill in U.S. history.
Two years later, scientists and commercial fishers alike are finding shrimp, crab and fish that they believe have been deformed by the chemicals unleashed in the spill, according to an extensive report by Al Jazeera English.
"At the height of the last white shrimp season, in September, one of our friends caught 400 pounds of these," Tracy Kuhns, a commercial fisher from Barataria, La., told Al Jazeera, showing a sample of the eyeless shrimp.
'Eyeless fish, and fish lacking even eye sockets, and fish with lesions, fish without covers over their gills....'
- Darla Rooks, Louisiana fisher
Darla Rooks, another lifelong fisher from Port Sulfur, La., told the broadcaster she was seeing "eyeless fish, and fish lacking even eye sockets, and fish with lesions, fish without covers over their gills and others with large pink masses hanging off their eyes and gills."
Rooks added that she had never seen such deformities in Gulf waters in her life -- a refrain common to most fishers featured in the report -- and said her seafood catch last year was "ten percent what it normally is."

BP IS RESPONSIBLE AND OUR GOVERNMENT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ALLOWING THEM TO CONTINUE TO DO BUSINESS WITH OUR COUNTRY.

I personally think Americans are irresponsible for allowing these morons in Washington to continue to lord over us.
