What do U think? Read the clip in the Galveston Daily News by Capt. Joe Kent. The concern about so called toxic/polluted waters. What is considered toxic? Definition of: ?? Are the waters toxic or do they just contain toxins? Floatin' fish!! Don't eat but 8ozs. of fish a week! Remember that? Smoothing over an already concerned situation How do U see this?

Are the waters contaminated/polluted w/ chemical toxins? Two ways to tell according to the know-it-alls. Even tho we do not "see" both, can the waters STILL be toxic/polluted? Savy??

yes, the waters in galveston bay are probably still quite polluted, and probably will be for some time to come. the bay is full of dead and decaying bodies of animals and maybe even people. there is also no telling how many sunken appliances, industrial machines and tanks leaking chemicals, boats leaking oil and gasoline, electrical transformers leaking pcb's, etc, etc that there may be in the bay. many of these things may not even be leaking chemicals now, but may start leaking a year from now.

the environmental consequences of an event like this are disasterous and may effect us for years into the future.

should you eat the fish, shrimp and oysters harvested from galveston bay? i dunno. that's your call to make.

In a word No, especially not shell fish. Think about it, there was a fish consumption advisory before and a whole lot of unknown stuff was washed into the bays and rivers since Ike.
