Letter from the Editor

Dear Friends,

Just a few months ago, the Gulf Coast oyster industry was threatened with a proposed oyster ban.  It has been a trying month for the entire Gulf Coast seafood industry as the BP oil spill creeps closer to the coast.  During this time, it is important that we support our Gulf Coast fisherman.  Much seafood remains safe to eat and many seafood organizations encourage us to continue buying this Gulf Coast Seafood.  Click here to find out the oil spill forecast, what fisherman are doing, and more, visit the Louisiana Seafood Promotion Board.  Also, visit the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries to see closures and to get information about the oil spill response.

The Southern Food and Beverage Museum has some excellent information on the history of the Louisiana seafood industry in the Leah Chase Louisiana Gallery.  Please check it out during your visit!

To learn more, visit our beautiful, new, updated website at http://www.southernfood.org.

Cheers, ya’ll!
