Shrimp Owner On One-Year Anniversary Of Capped BP Oil Well
One year after the Deepwater Horizon oil well was capped, the fishing industry in Louisiana is still far from back to normal. Dean Blanchard is the owner of one of the largest shrimping businesses in Grand Isle. He says it's been an extremely stressful year. He says it's been a challenge to sell shrimp, because of public perception, and he feels it's only going to get worse. Blanchard says nothing is the same since the BP oil spill. He says he's hoping for a hurricane to flush the remaining spilled oil out of the Gulf.
