Ongoing series by the Gulf Restoration Network documenting the environmental and community impacts of the BP disaster.

Featuring music from MyNameIsJohnMichael and Honey Island Swamp Band. Narrated in part by Tim Robbins.

With the BP well finally killed, long-term environmental impacts on the fish populations of the Gulf becomes a more significant concern. Mississippi fishermen document high levels of oil in the Gulf, more than enough to kill fish eggs and impact survival of this seasons spawning class. Community activists are also concerned about the enormous amount of oiled waste that has been generated, and whether plans to deal with it are sufficient.

Features interviews with fisheries biologist Dr. Martin O'Connell of the University of New Orleans, Clint Guidry of the Louisiana Shrimp Association, David Gauthe of Bayou Interfaith Shared Organizing Committee (BISCO), Casey Roberts, MSPH of Gulf Restoration Network, and Darryl Malek-Wiley of the Sierra Club.

Created with the generous support of the Vitalogy Foundation and the Wallace Global Fund.
