Shrimping and Oyster Farming Interruption Lawyers

Oil Contamination and Catch Losses

The spread of oil into the Gulf Coast region has led to the contamination of several coastal species, including shrimp and oysters. Not only does this pollution have severe implications for the wellbeing of coastal ecosystems and sea life, but it also threatens to ruin the livelihoods of shrimpers and oyster farmers who rely on healthy catches to make money.

In addition, even if some catches remain untainted by the oil spill, they may be difficult to sell to wary consumers. The spill could have a lasting impact on the reputations of shrimpers and oyster farmers in the Gulf Coast region, hurting their profits for months and possibly years.
