Author: Mark Schleifstein, Times-Picayune [USA], Published on: 22 February 2011
BP has reneged on promises made in November to negotiate early payments to Louisiana to help rebuild oyster beds, repair damaged wetlands and build a fish hatchery to allow the state to respond immediately to the collapse of commercial fisheries in the wake of the BP Gulf oil spill, state officials said Monday... Department of Wildlife & Fisheries director Robert Barham...said [BP] has clearly moved from a public relations strategy to one focusing on litigation over whether damage to the state's oyster beds was BP's fault...A spokesman for BP's new Gulf Coast Restoration Organization, now leading the oil spill response effort in Louisiana, could not be reached for comment Monday night.
