Seth Klebe T.A. Kahan ENVS 2 8/11/2011 RLL: Rigs-to-Reefs Pros/ Cons for a Commercial Fisherman: Pros: Increases the density of fish near oil rigs, possibly increases the actual population of fish, allows for larger fisherman yields, some rigs are towed closer to shore so fisherman do not have to go out of their way for the fish, and the rigs create new spots for fisherman to fish where there was otherwise nothing profitable. Cons: Nets can snag on rigs if not careful, trace amounts of oil, lead, arsenic, zinc, and hydrocarbons could still remain that harms the fish, if a rig is not moved closer fisherman may have to go out of their way to access the spot, and marine life could be harmed if the rig is severed using explosives to be moved.
