Gulf Re-opens for Fishing, First Time After BP (NYSE:BP) Oil Spill

Some portions of the Gulf of Mexico have been re-opened for fishing, the first time since the BP (NYSE:BP) oil spill has spread oil across the region.

This announcement came from Louisiana wildlife officials, who said state waters which are east of the Mississippi River in four parishes (counties) will be re-opened for fishing.

Both fish and shrimp will be allowed to be fished for at this time.

After extensive testing by the Drug Administration, the fish and shrimp were declared to be safe for consumption, the reason for the announcement fisherman could go ahead and begin again.
