State Officials In Alabama Close Gulf Shrimping After Scientists Find Severe Deformities

Eyeless Shrimp and Other Grotesque Deformities In Gulf Seafood Cause Alabama to “Temporarily” Shut Down Shrimping

After scientists and fishermen have found severe deformities in a substantial percentage of Gulf seafood, the State of Alabama has moved to shut down shrimping.

WERC-FM local news reports:

Some area waters along the Gulf Coast will close to shrimping starting today.  The areas closed are all waters in the Mississippi Sound, Mobile Bay, areas of Bon Secour, Wolf Bay, and Little Lagoon.  The closure comes after scientists found smaller than average population of shrimp and lesions. They say the plan to test the water and will continue to run samples until the waters are re-opened.  There is no set time when the waters will be open for shrimping again

Local ABC affiliate WEAR TV reports:

The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources has temporarily closed some local waterways to shrimping.  The waters were closed to shrimping on Monday.

The areas include all waters in the Mississippi Sound, Mobile Bay, areas of Bon Secour, Wolf Bay, and Little Lagoon.

The closure is in response to routine shrimp sampling that indicated the average size were smaller than 68 head-on shrimp per pound.  Meaning biologists found smaller than average shrimp in the waters causing the temporary closure.  They will continue to take samples in these areas and determine any modifications to the closures.

And we’d like to clarify that the closures were not due to lesions being found on shrimp as we reported earlier this weekend and Monday morning.

However, the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (“ADCNR”) has previously pretended that shrimp closures were due to size – and not oil.

For example, on May 20, 2010 – a month after the Gulf oil spill started – ADCNR’s website said:

Closed all inside waters to shrimping. This closure is a seasonal closure due to shrimp size. Closure was not related to oil spill.

Is this surprising in a world where dead animals are hidden to reduce BP’s liability and BP and the Coast Guard pretend that petroleum is  “fish oil” and “algae”?

    That’s why I quit fishing in the Gulf after the BP disaster. It’s a shame too, there is a nice fishing pier 2 miles from my house that I used to frequent.

    Permanent Biological Contamination of the Gulf

    While natural viruses and bacteria respect species barriers, the storm of artificial genetics created by synthetic biology engineers — in order to eliminate the flow of crude oil and gasses in the Gulf of Mexico — are actually designed to cross species barriers. This has created new viral and bacterial pathogens never seen before. It is directly responsible for the spreading of drug and antibiotic resistant viral and bacterial outbreaks along the Gulf Coast, a pestilence that I have named The Gulf Blue Plague.

      Death Loving Sociopathic Professor Calls for Global ‘Genocide’ to Save Earth

      A video has popped up showing University College’s Emeritus Professor John Guillebaud, patron of the UK-based “Population Matters”, standing before a screen depicting among other things a machine-gun, a hospital bed, and a knife dripping with blood, as examples of “natural” population control as opposed to “artificial” methods such as contraception and family planning.

        Self-Ownership, Self-Reliance, and Community through local building of Knowledge, Health, and Prosperity

        Today’s world, both perceived and actual, is filled with danger and attack from broad, multi-faceted sources and locations. Politics and Financial Institutions, military and police-state encroachments, the inappropriate Courts, the subsuming effect of the CORPGOV “over-Lord” in our Churches/religious centers, our educational institutions, even our nutrition and health—all these have combined within the expanse of our ever widening view of the Beast to the point that they overwhelm much of our abilities to see and implement ideas and solutions of good and useful effect in our daily lives in order for us to not only *save our selves*, not only *remove our selves from the path of the Subversion*, but to actually *bring the Subversion to it’s demise.*

        okay, enough with the pompous wordy wrappings–

        we have the networks of individuals and groups already in place to put to work that research, the organization of ideas and action plans, and to *act*—except, now, instead of focusing on researching the historical history of the subversion, I say we put that research to work gathering, organizing, and implementing ideas and action of *solutions.*

        To begin re-focusing, not on “money,” rather on Fair Exchange of Value; to re-focus not on “jobs,” rather on “work,” as Labor and *real livelihood*…those things that constitute Life, and provide Prosperity, across the full sprectrum of what Life *is.*
