Fw: Oil Spill and Louisiana Seafood- We need your input
We need your help.
Louisiana Cookin' is working with the Louisiana seafood industry to try to determine what the public's perception is of the ongoing oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, and how it is affecting the seafood coming out of the Gulf.
While the spill is a tragedy of as yet unknown scope, as of May 4 more than 75% of the Gulf is still open to fishermen and remains unaffected. So far, all waters west of the mouth of the Mississippi River are open and are being actively fished, ensuring fresh, tasty, SAFE seafood for our restaurants and markets.
Please take a few minutes to fill out the very short survey linked below and comment as you like.
Please note that seafood is labeled as to the specific zone from which it was harvested, ensuring that reputable restaurants and fish markets do not accidentally sell product from an unsafe zone. We encourage you to go out and eat some seafood, and select some of the great recipes we've linked from my blog to prepare at home for friends and family.
Thank you in advance for your time,
