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

Kimmie Serigne surrounds blue crab with ice preparing them for grading and packing after arriving back 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. Blue crab fishing was the only industry open after shrimp and oyster fishing were closed a month earlier.
