UPDATE 1-Fishing closed in waters affected by oil spill-NOAA

(Adds details)

HOUSTON, May 2 (BestGrowthStock) – U.S. officials closed commercial
and recreational fishing for a minimum of 10 days in federal
waters affected by the massive oil spill in the U.S. Gulf of
Mexico, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
said on Sunday.

The affected waters are largely between Louisiana State
waters at the mouth of the Mississippi River to Florida’s
Pensacola Bay, the agency said.

“Balancing economic and health concerns, this order closes
just those areas that are affected by oil,” NOAA Administrator
Jane Lubchenco, said in a statement. “There should be no health
risk in seafood currently in the marketplace.”

There are fish, crabs, oyster and shrimp near the spill and
officials are working to prohibit harvesting from affected
areas, NOAA said.
