It's been a year since the BP oil disaster and people are wondering whether seafood from the Gulf of Mexico is safe to eat. And last week at the Monterey Bay Aquarium's annual Cooking for Solutions Sustainable Foods Institute, scientists, environmental experts and the fishing community all agree that yes, seafood from the Gulf of Mexico is perfectly safe to eat.
The credit for the relative quick recovery goes to helpful bacteria that broke down the oil before it could reach the ocean's surface.
Look for a new brand of seafood called Gulf Wild, from The Shareholder's Alliance, a group of Gulf fishermen who have agreed to conservation agreements that build and extend on federal regulations. The Shareholders’ Alliance, hopes the program will help grow the market for fresh Gulf seafood.
