BP oil spill delays shrimp season

Fishermen concentrate on the harm the spill is having on their livelihoods.

    Robert Dudley, the new chief executive of BP, will have to try and clean up the company's reputation as well as the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

    But for many of those living on the southern coast of the United States, the focus will continue to be on dealing with the economic fallout rather than boardroom changes. 

    The 90-day shrimping season that hauls in a whole year's income for so many fishermen in the region has been delayed because of the situation.
