The Effects of the Oil Spill on Farmers and Fishermen

The Gulf coast is renowned for its high-quality seafood. Much of the fishing in the Gulf coast region is sustainable and even good for the environment. However, the oil spill practically destroyed this industry. After the spill, fishing areas were restricted, fish were covered in oil, and many people stayed away from purchasing fish from the Gulf for months after the spill. This left fisherman and their businesses facing financial difficulties.

Additionally, farmland was ruined as the oil that washed ashore. The inability to farm the land caused financial hardships for farmers in the Southern states. These losses should be compensated for and farmers should be given the chance to recover.
