Jindal touts safety of seafood to fishing association

Governor addresses American Sportfishing Association.

Gov. Bobby Jindal told the American Sportfishing Association yesterday (Oct. 13) that Louisiana’s fishing is as good as ever and that the state’s seafood has shown no ill effects from 2010’s BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

Jindal told fishing industry leaders, in New Orleans for the association’s annual convention, that even with all of the testing that has been done on the state’s seafood, not one sample has come back as having contimination or taint from the oil spill.

“I’ve got three children, and I regularly feed them Louisiana seafood,” Jindal said. “As governor, as a husband, as a father, I wouldn’t do that unless I was absolutely certain it was safe.”

Jindal pointed ASA members to www.gulfsource.org to view details of recent tests on Louisiana seafood.

The ASA convention is being held at the Loews Hotel in New Orleans, and will conclude Oct. 14.
