I grew up eating fresh seafood right off the boats that sailed into and docked in the port of Baltimore,during the late 1950's and 60's.
It was exciting to watch my father bring home a bushel of blue crabs live and cook them in a pot on the stove or to eat a spot or rock fish fresh from the Chesapeake Bay.
I have been paying attention to the state of health to the Chesapeake Bay for the past few years and it's not good folks.
Between overfishing and pollution flowing into the Bay,fishing and crabbing is not what it use to be.
So with the Oil leaking from the BP oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico creeping slowly and closer to the fishing areas of the Gulf,30% of the shrimp consumed in this country is about to become contaminatated with crude oil.
The big shots at BP oil is said to have led every government agency involved with this spill clean up to believe that they had this spill under control.
The price of seafood will hit the roof in the coming days and BP will try it's best to spin the story as to not make the spill it's problem.
