Video: Bay Shrimping After the BP Oil Spill

We drove out to the tip of Louisiana early one morning to tape this episode of Perennial Palate. Storms had wiped out so much; it wasn't easy to find someone to take us out fishing. Gas is expensive and it doesn't make sense to go out for less than a few days. But we found Sinh Pham, a Vietnamese fisherman trying to get by with low dock prices for his shrimp, high fuel prices and the uncertainty of the BP oil spill's effects on his industry.

There are many disagreements out there about the future of fishing and shrimping in the gulf. This episode shows one perspective, as well as some awesome food too.
