Aug. 2011 - Almost exactly one year to date following the BP oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico - which has become known worldwide as the most impactful environmental disaster in US History - more discerning news is being brought to the forefront regarding our fisheries, and the "successfully sealed" BP oil rig leak.
August, 2010.

The seafood, which the FDA so confidently reassured the world of, in August of 2010, was safe for human consumption, is now testing way outside of established governmental parameters, and people up and down the coastal line impacted by the spill are testing positive for Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), arsenic, and other heavy metals known to cause serious ill-effects to humans as well as other land dwelling mammalian life, coastal bird species, and more.

Simple solution to what may now be an unsolveable end result?  Random, repeated testing of the fisheries various inhabitants from crustaceans and bivalves, to the larger game fish, marine mammals and the like....sequentially documenting any increase in harmful elements providing the world's seafood lovers with a head's up warning against consumption, rather than an "oops we made a mistake" a year later when innumerable numbers of people are now facing serious health issues related to their consumption of tainted seafood..

How many more mistakes can be made before every ounce of the life remaining in our environment is bled out? NF, 2011
