I've alway's thought that the fish I caught out in the Gulf were the best you could eat, that it was a lot safer to eat Gulf fish as opposed to the fish in the bays and bayous and the rivers because of all the pollutants that have been dumped there from the past and present . Now, post oil spill, I'm at odds with that frame ofthought, I think that the oil spill has forever tarnished my belief that the fish in the Gulf are safe to eat. I know that over time the visible affects from the oil spill will be gone, but the latent effects from thepetroleum and the chemicals being used todisperseit may contaminate the fish for years to come. I'm sure that their will be random testing done on seafood that is sold in the fish markets for the next few years, but my questions is: <span class="Apple-style-span" style="background-color: rgb(255, 221, 0);">How will the Recreational Fisherman be able to tell if their catch is Safe to eat? We don't take our catch to fish markets to be processed and analyzed, it goesstraightfrom the cooler to the table. I wouldn't be so worried if it was just me that ate the fish, but I have a wife and son and step daughter, and it was always a special occasion to invite family and friends over for a fish fry with the catch of the day. It would be devastating to find out years down the road that my son or another family member became terminally sick with some rare disease or cancer that could be linked back to the fish that we ate out of the Gulf of Mexico that I caught, fixed and feed to them. <span class="Apple-style-span" style="background-color: rgb(255, 221, 0);">Should we, as Recreational Fishermen, demand that BP provides us some sort of free "testing kit" to determine if the fish is safe to consume? Maybe I am being too paranoid, but I know for sure that every fish that I bring home post oil spill will never in my mind be as safe or good as it was pre oil spill.
