Louisiana creates committee to oversea oyster industry

Posted on September 30th, 2010 No Comments

In the wake of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, Louisiana has created a new advisory committee in order to make further decisions regarding the oyster industry.

The oyster industry has been one of the hardest hit industries after the oil spill in the Gulf. Some oyster farmers have reported that entire leases have been taken out because of the opening of the river diversions.

Mississippi decided to open the river diversions to try and keep the oil out of the interior marshes. The goal of the Oyster Advisory Committee is to ensure the people in the oyster industry are compensated adequately from all of the oil spill damages.

If you or a loved one makes a living in the oyster industry and loss profits as a result, you need experienced representation on your side. Contact the Gulf oil spill loss of profit lawyers of Williams Kherkher by calling 800-821-1544.
