The spill is really going to have a long term effect on our fish supply. The government according to our president is going to do all they can.He has already been quoted as saying the fish supply is fine for consumption and we will step up our inspections. Well help us all, we get almost no inspection now. The gulf shrimp as well as oyster industry is all but finished. We will be paying extremely high prices for all seafood(supply and demand). We will rely more and more on import of which only 20% were inspected over the last few years. Maybe some large food company will come out with artificial fish or imitation shrimp and lobster containing no seafood whatsoever.. As far as leaving it to our government, it is a lot of Obama lip service. Give all the ex fisherman a Tarp payment as that was the government answer to the auto and banking industry??? And look how far that has taken us.
