It has been one year since the Deepwater Horizon oil spill sent us into a panic and forced many to think about the seafood industry in the Gulf of Mexico.
Did the oil crisis affect your family or friends?
Are you eating seafood from the Gulf?
Looking forward to hearing your thoughts, Elizabeth
Thanks for your Reply!

Great topic! I'm always confused about which fish is safe anyway. I would avoid giving my children anything from that exact region for sure. And I would have to do research before ordering from a menu or buying at the market.
