The BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico has negatively impacted numerous businesses that depend on the Gulf waters, including seafood processing plants. Morgan & Morgan, a national law firm with offices throughout Florida and the Southeast, is actively involved in the ongoing oil spill litigation. The firm is currently reviewing claims on behalf of residents and businesses in Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana that have suffered economic losses as a result of the oil spill.

 

Seafood processing plants along the Gulf coast are among the businesses that have experienced significant revenue losses as a result of fishing ground closures and potentially oil-contaminated waters. Seafood processing is the method by which fish and other types of seafood are prepared for transportation to grocery stores and restaurants and, ultimately, consumption. Seafood processing plant employees handle a number of tasks, including sorting, skinning, salting, filleting, and packing fish. Many of these employees are now facing reduced hours, lost wages, and the reality that their jobs may be in jeopardy.

 

The oil spill attorneys at Morgan & Morgan are currently reviewing claims on behalf of those involved with the seafood processing industry who have suffered financial losses as a result of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion. It remains to be seen how long the BP oil spill will have a negative influence on the Gulf of Mexico seafood processing industry. However, the destructive environmental effects of this catastrophe may continue to be felt by Gulf Coast businesses and residents for years to come. Under the Oil Pollution Act of 1990, those who have suffered economic losses as a result of the oil spill may be entitled to compensation.
