Fishermen of the Gulf

  • Aired: 07/23/2010
  • 10:19
  • Rating: NR
The fishing industry along the Gulf Coast has has been thrown into turmoil. Boat captains can't fish and therefore can't hire deckhands. Mechanics aren't being hired to do repairs. And the small businesses aren't selling supplies. Many in the fishing industry say they haven't been able to get replacement work, and they don't know when they'll be able to resume their livelihoods.
