Aubrey McMillan Env S 2; T 5-5:50 2/1/2011 Real Life Link II: Stakeholders Affected by the BP Oil Spill Concerns of Fishermen in Regards to the Oil Spill Around 30,000 jobs directly depend on fisheries – many fishermen lost their jobs due to the oil spill’s effect on the fish industry in states such as Louisiana. Toxic chemicals could taint fish and shrimp – if any of this tainted fish gets put on the market, the fishermen will suffer the blame. It is hard to find food processors that will buy fish/shrimp from the Gulf area. When a food processor is found, they will only buy the fish/shrimp at prices well below those prior to the oil spill. There are less fish to catch; oysters that were not directly killed by the oil spill were “finished off” by the freshwater flood (which was an attempt by the Louisiana government to keep the oil offshore). It will take a very long time for the oil spill to be completely cleaned up – many fisheries will be forced to go out of business
