Toxins can accumulate in the liver and reproductive organs of anything including us. Some times they go away and sometimes they don't. If I eat something that I catch I will do the smell test that they are doing in labs that I saw on TV. If it smells like oil, then you know it is there. If my child was still young, I would take her to UWF swimming pool instead of the gulf. It is just unbelievable what a major corporation has done to our natural resources to make us have to worry about being poisoned.

I agree, if there were a lot of dead fish out there, the sharks would not be congregating close to shore. They would hang out at the smorgasboard. But then I could be wrong on this.

Something like come to Pensacola where fishing season has been extended and the fish have not been fished this year. That would be the logical thing to do unless the meat is toxic. Nothing else makes sence to me if everything is as good as they lead us to believe.
amen ! what happened in1979 when twice the oil was released from the itoc rig over 9 months ... i dont recall any affects ... yes it was in the bay of campichi but shallow water moves faster with currents ,

I wish channel 3 would do an independent water test.


well i personally know the pensacola guy whos job it is to catch and test fish . Dave Bartee . And when this discussion came up , he said eat them ... they are fine here . I have been in the water ... and been eating fish ... just my personal experience

i dont eat the reproductive organs or livers of fish that i catch, so im good!

if there were any major fish kills the media would be all over it. those pics would put a photographer's kids through college.

panic and sensationalism is not gonna help with the clean up or get our local economy going again.

Study Finds Pensacola Has The Nation’s Worst Water

December 13, 2009

Pensacola has the worst drinking water of any American city, according to the results of a national survey released Saturday.

In the study, there were 21 chemicals found in Pensacola’s water that exceeded health guidelines, including radium, lead, bezene and carbon tetracholride.
In an unprecedented analysis of 20 million tap water quality tests performed by water utilities between 2004 and 2009, Environmental Working Group (EWG) found that water suppliers detected a total of 316 contaminants in water delivered to the public. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has set enforceable standards for only 114 of these pollutants.
Another 202 chemicals with no mandatory safety standards were found in water supplied to approximately 132 million people in 9,454 communities across the country. These “unregulated” chemicals include the toxic rocket fuel component perchlorate, the industrial solvent acetone, the weed killer metolachlor, the refrigerant Freon and radon, a highly radioactive gas.
Pensacola’s worst water ranking was among 100 of the nation’s largest water systems in cities over 250,000 in population. In North Escambia, water systems are operated by small independent water companies such as Walnut Hill Water Works, Molino Utilities, Central Water Works, Bratt-Davisville Water System and the Town of Century. These smaller water systems were not part of the worst water results. Only the water provided by the Emerald Coast Utilities Authority (ECUA) in the Pensacola metro area was part of the water study. The smaller North Escambia water systems were not included in the study by EWG.
