State officials admit: "Worried about FISHERY COLLAPSES, based on the collapse of the herring fishery" after the Exxon Valdez


Fishing, environmental groups weigh in on use of BP money, Times-Picayune, October 27, 2010:

State officials said, however, that they are equally worried about fishery collapses, based on the collapse of the herring fishery in the Prince William Sound area of Alaska after the Exxon-Valdez oil spill in 1989. ...

Meanwhile, Louisiana Bayoukeeper Tracy Kuhns urged the state to do a better job in collecting and testing samples from water bottoms along the coast for the presence of oil than the Coast Guard and other federal agencies, which have repeatedly denied finding oil.

"We get reports every day from recreational and commercial boats that behind their boats is oil, and it's coming from somewhere," she said. "How are we going to do restoration in those areas when the oil is in the sediment?"

    Dear Gov't Experts, What is your plan to counter the losses in revenue concerning the GOM crisis? As a concerned entity of the corporation, it appears that your company has lost a staggering amount of 'tax' money from the fishing industry. Will we, as whole, be billed for this on the installment plan such as "VAT" or would you recommend payment in a lump sum amount on April 15th? ............... signed, Sally Sheeple.
