New Orleans TV: “Alarming discovery” of adult crabs “filled with some sort of black substance” (VIDEO)


Television graphic reads 'Oiled Crabs'

Fox 8 (New Orleans) reports on an "alarming discovery" made by Mississippi fishermen -- around a half dozen "full-sized crabs filled with some sort of black substance."

The find "has many wondering what's happening below the surface in the Gulf of Mexico."

"You could tell it was real slick and dark," said one of the men who discovered the crab, a longtime seafood supplier and owner of Gulf Shores Sea Products. After opening the shell, he said "The lungs of the crabs -- you could see the black." According to Fox 8, "He said he's never seen anything like it... crab's lungs are normally a white."

Fox 8 reports that this seafood supplier said "some of the largest processing facilities in the country say they just can't buy from him right now because they say the sentiment around the country is that this oil and dispersant mix is at the bottom and in our seafood."

It appears the processing facilities know something the public doesn't.
