Transcript Excerpt

[S]ome independent scientists are expressing concerns that the seafood testing falls short of being thorough...

[Dr. William] Sawyer is a Florida-based toxicologist, hired by a New Orleans law firm to look at test results of water and seafood samples. Some tests revealed elevated levels of hydrocarbons in seafood.

He said what concerns him most, though, is an FDA map, showing where shrimp samples were collected in July, in the waters around St. Bernard Parish. "Almost all of the trawl samples were collected near shore, that is, within one-mile of shore, or in the bayous," Sawyer said. "Only one trawl sample was collected offshore." ...

"I never saw any samples taken anywhere closer than the mouth of the Atchafalaya. Why is that?" St. Mary Parish President Paul Naquin asked to Rear Adm. Zunkunft. Zunkunft replied: "That's what we're working right now."
