Thank you Leslie Brenner at Eatsblog for doing all of the reporting. She does a nice job of getting us up to date on the state of shrimp in the Gulf Coast. It’s here and it’s not pretty. Anybody seen any changes on area menus? I think we can kiss cheap oysters goodbye.
UPDATE: And CNN. And from Jon at TJ’s Seafood: “Live Gulf Oysters:
This is the species most susceptible to contamination. Right now 6 of the 32 oyster beds in Louisiana are shut down. However, the season for live gulf oysters is coming to a close. The pre-shucked oysters we have for cooking in our freezer were harvested before the spill and are not affected.”
