BP Gulf Oil Spill Fishing Waters Reopened Despite Lack Of Testing Required By Federal Protocols

As the Huffington Post points out in its post “Gulf Fisheries Opened: Safe Or BP Politics, PR and “Sock Puppetry?” the Federal Government has decided to open over 26,000 square miles of the Gulf of Mexico affected by the BP Gulf Oil Spill.

Dr. Jane Lubchenco, NOAA Administrator, announced the re-opening of a substantial portion of the southeast section of the closed fishing area in Gulf of Mexico federal waters at a press conference on Thursday. NOAA reopened 26,388 square miles of Gulf waters to commercial and recreational fishing at 6 p.m., EDT Thursday. This opening was decided upon after “consultation with the FDA and under a re-opening protocol agreed to by NOAA, the FDA, and the Gulf states,” Lubchenco said.
