Fishermen in Saint Bernard Parish affected by the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

Sal Gagliano, center, Anthony Major, right, and Kimmie Serigne, far right, grade and pack blue crab on Delacroix Island, LA on May 22nd, 2010. Local fishermen were racing against time to catch crab and earn an income before the fishing industry completely shut down with oil contaminating the waters after the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Currently blue crab fishing is the only industry open after shrimp and oyster fishing were closed a month earlier.
