Seafood deformities in the Gulf of Mexico

Now this truly is disgusting.

The Gulf of Mexico is producing horribly mutated and tumorous shrimp, fish with oozing sores, underdeveloped blue crabs lacking claws, eyeless crustaceans, and worse.

I’ve seen TWO versions of this story, one from Associated Press and another from Al Jazeera English. CNN, FOX, MSNBC, and others don’t appear to have much to say on the subject.

The Associated Press simply glossed over some of the illnesses being found in seafood from the Gulf of Mexico and focused on the BP funded researchers who claim the cause is –gasp– a mystery.

The Al Jazeera story goes in-depth, interviews several independent researchers and marine biologists, discusses the larger implications for marine life in the Gulf, and details the levels of which this is related to the BP’s Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

Which version would you like to see?
