US fishermen struggle to survive

The oil spill threatens the livelihood of many fishermen.



    The fishing ban is threatening the livelihood of many fishermen in the US gulf region.

    The organisation that market gulf seafood say they fully support the fishing ban, because in the long term it would protect the good name of their product.

    But this is proven to be difficult for the small fishermen who are watching what may be a full season's income or more fall victim to the disaster.
