It gets better all of the time- Read link below- apparently once an fishing area is closed with oil actively seen in it, there is a process it has to go through to be reopened including testing by "a panel consisting of a minimum of 10 expert sensory assessors will evaluate each sample in both a raw and cooked state."

Overview of Testing Protocol to Re-open Harvest Waters that were Closed in Response to the Deep Horizon Oil Spill

My question is what the hell is a sensory testor and where do you find 10 of them?

You are right. We are never going to legally fish in federal waters again. I guess the next research is to find out what happens if you are caught fishing in a closed area...

On one of the TV channels a couple of days ago they had some people in a lab wafing the smell from a container of seafood. Evidently there is a distinct odor to petroleum products on/in the contaminated seafood. They showed some of the sensory testers comparing the smell to some known contaminated products to see if their olfactory senses were picking up the scent. I would volunteer Sonny my labrador retriever but I don't think that he would wait to tell us the results.

[QUOTE=xyzzy;545973]The spill is much worse then that

I like Roff's for fishing but this chart is suspect- is it an illustration of where oil is going and has been?

Here is USF's Marine Science college links to the latest forecast: WFSFCS hindcast and forecast surface trajectories for Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill using OI Wind
NOAA's forecasts are located here:
http://response.restoration.noaa.gov...07-06-2100.pdf

As you can see, NOAA forecast shows the majority of federal waters off FLorida out of even the 'uncertain' forecast areas. Furthermore, aerial recon and boats on the water report the closest oil to PC 125 miles SSW of St. Andrew's Pass.

On the seafood test, my guess is there really is not much motivation to test an reopen waters and that was prob a PR stunt to justify the continued closures- did the show say where the seafood was coming from?

I'm suspect too, there are better projections maps taking in more info as to the oils movement which is mainly wind and current influenced.
