Oil clean up efforts continue.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
21 August 2010. Jean Lafitte, Louisiana.
One of just a handful of shrimp boats, laden with nets instead of oil boom returns to fishing as the worst environmental disaster in US history continues to unfold in south Louisiana. Many shrimpers have not returned to work thanks in part to regular pay from contractors working the BP clean up operation. The disaster has taken a heavy toll on fishing. Processing plants remain closed and BP has leased many boat slips and fish landing sites that have been converted into BP oil response staging areas.
