    Louisiana seafood

    Anyone from Louisiana tried any seafood from the Gulf yet? Reports say it is safe, but I would rather hear it from a native.

    They are selling Jumbo Shrimp around here at $5.00 a lb. but i haven't bought any yet. From what i understand all the catches are tested before packaging and if they find oil the whole catch is dumped. I would'nt be afraid of it, but like i said i haven't purchased any yet.

    Zip.

    PS i can also buy 31 to 40 size peeled and devained at WallMart for $5.00 a lb. probably imported.

    I havent tried any " bonified" GULF seafood yet, come to think of it I havent even seen any....

    I did see a truck today selling shrimp on the side of the road, I didnt check their prices or where it was from.

    On the side of the truck it just said "- - - - shrimp"

    It was obvious they whited out the gulf part...lol
