Thanks for posting this video, Inda. I think this specifically addresses what a lot of us as sportsmen are worried about when it comes to the spill in the Gulf. From the footage in the video, it is clear to see that this has already had an impact on the bottom members of the food chain, the organisms and invertebrates that can't escape the water. And as Ryan Lambert was saying in the video, when the bottom of the food chain goes, the devastation will naturally begin to work its way up as food becomes unavailable for the group of animals on the next step up. I guess we can only wait and see to what extent this damage will ultimately go, and what effect it will have on the ducks and geese that will begin arriving in the area in just a few months.

botits-
This has been my biggest fear since this well became uncontrollable...that we have a fisheries collapse from the bottom of the food chain up...the plankton, the invertibrates,etc...then the small fish like pogeys and shrimp die, then the larger species....it makes me sick just thinking about it!! :mad: We have such a phenomenal fisheries here..it really breaks my heart. The unknowns and the uncertainty is taking it's toll on the local people that live off these waters...
Hopefully more attention on our ecosystem here in louisiana will be a result of this mess...

BTW-buy a chance ($2.00/chance) to win a Saint's super bowl ring that is being raffled off by the team..only one EVER to be raffled off...proceeds will go to the restoration effort...thanks in advance... :thumbsup:

I saw your other post about the raffle. It mentioned that the site is not up yet to start buying tickets? As soon as it is up and running, I will buy a couple tickets. 2 dollars a pop is nothing, especially knowing what the proceeds go toward. I don't really care about the ring.

the people of south louisiana appreciate it.. they hope to raise 1 million...but I know it will raise more than that for the same reason that you just typed. I'm betting non Saints fans will even participate. Matter of fact-The Manning Family is from New Orleans and have helped out tremendously. Class act on Peyton's part... :thumbsup:
