Alabama Reopens Coastal Waters To Crabbing Despite Massive Oil And Dispersant Contanimation Found By Indepdendant Scientists


Local News NBC 15 reports that Alabama has reopened all of its local waters to crabbing.

Alabama conservation officials say it’s safe to eat crabs taken from waters along the Gulf coast.The state said Friday it’s reopening all state waters that have been closed to crabbing because of the oil spill. That includes the Gulf itself plus Mobile Bay, the Mississippi Sound and Pelican Bay.

Officials say crabs in state waters shouldn’t pose any safety risk, and people can resume harvesting crabs at 6 a.m. Saturday.

The state previously allowed fishing and shrimping to resume in state waters.

Meanwhile indepdendant scientists say COREXIT and oil have been found in crab larvae from Florida to Texas and fear the entire food chain has been contaminated.

There are also widespread reports that the BP Gulf Oil Spill water is so toxic that dolphins, fish, crabs, stingrays and other Animals are literally “trying to crawl out of the water”.

In fact just this morning Bloomberg news reported that massive hypoxia in open waters due to low oxygen levels from methane and oil from the BP Gulf Oil Spill have left “catfish, shrimp, crab and flounder piled up along an offshore sandbar”.

All of this is especially alarming given that new LSU research shows that dispersants increase the speed that oil toxins from the BP Gulf Oil Spill bioaccumulate in the food chain.
