Shrimper says it’s the “worst he has ever seen” — Only 4 buckets of small shrimp in 3 hours

After Spill, Grand Isle Ready For Tourists Again, WDSU, February 14, 2011:

James Santiny has been shrimping the Gulf waters since he was 9 years old, and he said right now is the worst he has ever seen.

His latest catch was four buckets of small shrimp after a three-hour drag. That pales in comparison to the 12 to 15 buckets he pulled in pre-oil spill.

"We (are) just not seeing the potential in the shrimp that we usually do," Santiny said. "(It) could put you in a hole. You know, if you don't make your expense and everything, it could put you back, far."
