Dispersant applied “daily” on Apalachicola Bay using “black or camouflage” helicopters says Seafood Association president
Taunya James, president of the Franklin County Seafood Workers’ Association (FCSWA), repeatedly insisted dispersant was being applied to the bay daily by helicopters described as black or camouflage in color. She and other seafood workers claimed to be aware of serious local contamination.
[Florida DEP official Darryl] Boudreau asked if anyone who witnessed the application of dispersant could provide an aircraft identification number or had taken pictures.
“We’re out there to work, not take pictures,” replied James.
