BP, MOEX, Halliburton sued over declining fish populations in the Gulf [USA]

Numerous fisheries are suing Halliburton..., BP and MOEX...over claims the businesses lost profits as a result of the Deepwater Horizon explosion. Oak Island Seafood, Baytown Seafood Restaurant and many others, filed a lawsuit...in the Harris County District Court against BP, with an office in Memorial...citing negligence, gross negligence and products liability. The plaintiffs say that the Deepwater Horizon explosion on April 20, 2010, which caused the largest oil spill in U.S. history, prevented commercial fishing in the waters of the Gulf of Mexico, a once-abundant source of blue crab, shrimp, red snapper, grouper and more. The oil spill, caused by the defendants’ negligence, has negatively impacted the plaintiffs’ businesses, causing increased operating expenses and lost profits. The plaintiffs are seeking damages, punitive damages and court costs. [also refers to Transocean]
