I see.
I know that there are going to be a lot of people profiting from the disaster, like other oil companies, chemical companies like the ones who made the dispersant, lobbyists, Halliburton, lawyers, Goldman Sachs, Tony Hayward, etc. etc.
I doubt that the fishing industry is going to be on the list of those who profit from this.
