But it smells OK so go ahead and eat it

Gulf seafood deformities alarm scientists

It's amazing that the only media outlet reporting this story is based half a world away.  Simply amazing.

Hey who is this dick kid the T-P assigned to write this shit?

On Thursday, a National Enquirer-esque story was featured on the local online publication, Eater Nola, which mostly writes about local restaurants and food trends. The story told of "borderline Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles-esque mutations" found in Gulf species and then linked to an Al-Jazeera news story that discussed Louisiana shrimp and crab catch as dramatically down as a result of these "mutated shrimp, crab and fish."

A video above that Al-Jazeera article interspliced random footage of people eating while it discussed these alleged declines in species. Last month, one headline within a similar Al-Jazeera story exclaimed in bold letters, "The shrimp are all dead."

A simple call to the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries to ask for shrimp catch numbers would have told the publication otherwise.
