"Shrimp peelings are inexplicably washing up on Grand Isle’s shores"


Oil-spill protesters converge on Grand Isle, Houma Courier, November 21, 2010:

Fishermen are still finding oily shrimp and fish with oil in their gills and shrimp peelings are inexplicably washing up on Grand Isle’s shores, said Margaret Curole, a former shrimper from Galliano who now advocates for fisheries through the Commercial Fishermen of America and other groups. ...

Isadore “J.J.” Creppel, a 57-year-old shrimper from Plaquemines, said he’s seen tainted crustaceans. “At the head, if you see brown underneath, it’s contaminated,” Creppel said.

Grand Isle resident Terry Vegas said her husband, Percy, hasn’t trawled since the oil disaster started... “There’s a perception (the shrimp) are contaminated. And I’m not so sure they’re wrong, to tell you the truth.”
