If the story I posted yesterday wasn't enough to get you off Gulf seafood for a while, take a look at this photo .


It was taken by the University of Southern Misssissippi Gulf Coast Research Laboratory, and comes to us via The Associated Press. Blue crab larvae and pictured here, an immature blue crab with droplets of oil from the BP spill, trapped under its shell, are indicators of what is really happening in the seafood chain. Harriet Perry, a biologist with USM told the AP, "In my 42 years of studying crabs I've never seen this." Perry says that approximately 40 percent of the area crabs inhabit has been oiled by the spill.
