Gulf fisherman fears for future

Wildlife on southern US coast will feel impact of spill for years, one resident says.

    As officials with BP test the latest attempt to stem the flow of oil from a blown-out well in the Gulf of Mexico, fishermen continue to worry about the long-term affects of the spill.

    Ryan Lambert, a fisherman, hotel owner and well-known local businessman in New Orleans, Louisiana, has worked on the water for 29 years. He told Al Jazeera that he feared that the impact of the disaster will continue to be felt long after the media has moved on.
