"The BP oil spill has been a curse on everyone up and down the Gulf Coast.
For the Gulf seafood industry, it has been voodoo.
It seems the wild oil well has been plugged. And it seems the Gulf seafood ... the fish, the shrimp, the crabs, the oysters and the Spongebob Squarepants of the hood are all fit to eat, according to all the latest tests.
Bottom line: If it's tainted, it ain't on the market. If it's on the market, it's good to eat. ...
Problem is, the image. After 3 plus months of disastrous oily news coverage, confidence of the eating public has yet to be fully re-established."
