    There is not any problem on Mississippi beaches. There are some limited problems offshore at some of the uninhabited barrier islands. The seafood fishermen are being restricted on where they can fish. The impact to the availability of fresh gulf shrimp and some types of fish could be severe but is not yet that bad.

    The Louisiana marshes are getting hit with lots of oil. This will impact the present wildlife and also many migratory birds in the fall if the oil is not controlled.
