NEW ORLEANS — Commercial fishermen were allowed back in some Louisiana waters east of the Mississippi River today after federal authorities said samples of finfish and shrimp taken there were safe to eat.

In Mississippi, state waters north of the barrier islands were ordered opened to all commercial and recreational finfish and shrimp fishing activities that were part of the precautionary oil spill closures. The order takes effect at 6:01 p.m. today.

All commercial and recreational crab and oyster fishing will remain closed in the affected area.

With all those millions of gallons of Corexit in the gulf, I wouldn't eat anything that comes from there for years. The oil is bad enough but they completely put the kill on the Gulf with the oil dispersants.
