In response to consumer concerns about oil contaminated seafood from the Gulf of Mexico reaching the marketplace, Louisiana Sea Grant has produced a short video outlining the precautions taken to ensure tainted shell and finfish don’t end up on the table.

The one-minute video – demonstrates how trained inspectors detect oil contaminated seafood as part of the daily screening process. A high-definition version of the video also can be viewed or downloaded from Louisiana Sea Grant’s website. The HD video is an AVI file and may require a plug-in for your media viewer.
