Oil Contaminatin and Seafood Safety Video from Lousiana Sea Grant

I've had lots of people look at me funny when I explain to them that one of the most effective ways that trained inspectors detect for oil contamination in seafood is by simply smelling it. Never under estimate the power of the human nose!! This short video  that Lousiana Sea Grant put up on You Tube does a great job of explaining the process.
 (From LA Sea Grant) In response to consumer concerns about oil contaminated seafood from the Gulf of Mexico reaching the marketplace, Louisiana Sea Grant has produced a short video outlining the precautions taken to ensure tainted shell and finfish don't end up on the table.
