Yeah, now that's scientific right there...

Cowan can't say with certainly the cause of these lesions.
Cowan said, "We think from chronic exposure to some environmental stressor, and I think the likely assumption that it has something to do with the spill is there."

"I don't think we'll be fishing in five years," he said. "My opinion."

"But the 200 million gallons of crude spilled from the Deepwater Horizon last year is at the top of the list because the highest rate of sick fish are being found in the areas of the Gulf that were the most affected by the oil."

These two statements contradict each other. The area affected (ocean wise not financial wise) was so small when compared to the total area of the GOM. And i am going to guess home boy is NOT a scientist of any nature, and probably has NO data to back up that statement. Shame on CBS for even airing his opinion and quoting it as a scare factor.

AND WHY IS IT ONLY SNAPPER?!?!
No one has been able to answer this question for me. Would it not be all of the species that inhabit the gulf that should be getting sick if this were true? Or, like i have suggested in the past, Snapper populations are so dense that any type of desease would easily be spread. Oil leaks in the past have occured naturally, the GOM did not die.

Stop posting this crap and CBS you can take your fear mongering else where as well.

Look on the brightside, the Government may tell the commercial guys they can't catch them to sell to the public but us rednecks can catch and eat them at our own risk. ARS season open 8 months out of the year.

NAW..... They will tell us rednecks we can't catch them and eat them BUT the commercial guys can catch them and sell them to the public.

So a few snapper have freckles or pimples or something else. What percentage of deer in the woods are "cull bucks"? What percentage of people have some sort of "abnormality"...a mole on their face, a scar, a tattoo, anything that sets them apart from what is defined a the norm? Maybe snapper have always had a small percentage that had issues, but there were too few of them to find out. Now with more snapper in general, there's a greater total population of those that have a minority trait.
