"Oil & Water" Part 5-- "Kiss That Fish!"

By Bayou LaBatre, Alabama

Bayou LaBatre, Alabama – Part Five "Kiss That Fish." A recent poll shows forty percent of Americans still think Gulf seafood isn't safe to eat. Commercial fishermen in Bayou La Batre are fighting to win back seafood buyers who were scared off following the oil spill, and the effort may take years. One man in the corner of Gulf coast fisherman is nationally recognized Chef Frank Stitt, who runs three upscale restaurants in Birmingham. While many eateries shied away from seafood caught in Gulf waters after the spill, Stitt kept buying it for his customers.
