Why not just go Fishing for fresh water fish? Does anyone fish anymore ? Well, I for have not done this in 15 years and I know would be lots of fun.

I cannot help but wonder, how much longer can we continue to wreck havoc on this planet until something pushes us down an alternative, cleaner path? An in depth look at our destructional activities show that we're well on our way to our own demise. It's as though we're charging towards a brick wall, with no slowing down or any sign of stopping.
Is there any other species that flippantly destroys the envirnment that sustains it?
Today it's just kind of hit me, we're on a downward spiral and nothing is ever going to be 'good again' unless there is a major change in how we treat this planet. That doesn't make my future feel good.
About 3 percent of the fish they caught displayed gashes, ulcers and parasites symptomatic of environmental contamination, according to Murawski, the lead researcher. The number of sick fish rose not only as scientists moved west away from the relatively clean and oil-free waters of Florida but also as they pushed into deeper waters off the coasts of Alabama, Mississippi and especially Louisiana, near where the Deepwater Horizon sank.
About 10 percent of mud-dwelling tile fish caught in the DeSoto Canyon, to the northeast of the well, showed signs of sickness.
"The closer to the oil rig, the higher frequency was" of sick fish, Murawski said.

and once its in the food chain it will rise up to us.
I am sorry, did you think they sprayed all that corexit to get rid of the oil, wake up
The Massive hideous Corexit dump was an attack on our food chain. This was done on purpose and if you dont believe that you need your head examined, because you have probably eaten too much of it.

Very Interesting indeed. I wonder where all that cat food is ending up. Britiain, Scotland???
Wonder if its causing the "robot" disease cats are getting. Stiff legs and tails. Getting stuck in corners and cant turn around and its baffling vets. Robot Cat Disease Link

I know plenty of fishermen, I fish myself, and this is the first time I've heard anything close to this story. This story is alarmist claptrap.
I'm the last person to trust the government and corporations, believe me. I hate BP. Always will. But this is propaganda.edit on 18-4-2012 by pierregustavetoutant because: (no reason given)

Everyone is screaming deformities, I am screaming evolution.
With the massive BP oil spil, the thing probably grew that shell over its head so if it ran itno contaminated water like that it would some what sheld it.
And if they cleaned it up like they said they did, (:@@, the evolution would probably lose it again. And the things on its side it grew might just be obsorbers like a filter , like our liver. maybe they needed to grow more or something. Or it just could very well be tumors or cancer. We may never know.
The likely reason that there are no eyes on the shrimp are because of the dispersant Corexit and/or other chemicals are affecting the early development of the shrimp. It most likely is inhibiting a crucial pathway that signals cells to make the eyes. The thing to note about that is when one specific receptor or pathway is interrupted during cell division then other pathways and receptors are altered. without detailed studies done there is no way to find out what else is wrong with the shrimp. They could be mentally retarded, slow swimmers, etc. Only time will tell if that is at all beneficial to the evolution of the species but in my experience they will die off.
