Fishing Industry Loss of Business Information

In the 2000, commercial fishing catches in the Gulf accounted for about 25% of the total U.S. commercial fishing revenue, valued at over $900 million. For fishermen, boat owners, anglers, captains, deckhands, and all those involved in the commercial fishing industry, the oil spill is truly a catastrophic event. In Louisiana alone, there are over 15,000 commercial fishers. But fishermen are not the only ones involved in the commercial fishing industry, the 15,000 commercial fishermen in Louisiana support approximately 31,000 additional jobs. The seafood industry in the Gulf Coast brings in billions of dollars each year.

Thanks to BP and Transocean, all of the commercial fishing and related jobs in the areas of the Gulf affected by the oil spill are now at risk. Not only are the jobs at risk, but so are the boats, the companies, and the fishing grounds themselves-for months if not years. Some of the fishing grounds have already been closed, and no one knows yet for how long. And, depending on how much oil ends up being spilled and the currents, no one knows how much of the area will be affected either.
