    Its a safe assumption that the price of shrimp and lots of other
    seafoods will soon skyrocket due to the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
    Oyster prices are bound to be hit hard since something like 40% of the
    supply comes from there.

    Luckily, I heard shrimp is only about 5% from the Gulf.

    Anything over a 5 % increase will be a rip off.

    The shrimpers over here in the Brownsville area are not effected by the
    spill. They are working their butts off trying to keep up with the
    demand. Sorry to say that the local papers report that they will get
    higher prices for their shrimp due to the supply and demand factor. I
    bought lots of shrimp as soon as the oil spill happened so I got jumbos
    @ $5/lb and froze them.

    We should be able to get local oysters. They were on the menu the other
    night at a local eatery.

    BTW, just got back from 3 weeks in Israel. Y'all would be awed at the
    fresh veggies, fruits and herbs they have there. I definitely was.

    We are getting large shrimp for about $5 or $6 per pound, at least for
    now. It's nice to see you back, Greg.

    It's the same here in SW Louisiana, plenty of fresh shrimp, crabs,
    oysters, nearly all the way to Grand Isle. Mississippi, Alabama and
    Florida fisherman are still working too.

    The mainstream media is apparently trying to kill the fishing industry
    along the Gulf Coast, I haven't seen a news report yet that listed the
    places that aren't getting oil ashore or in the fishery. Governors of
    LA, MS, AL, and FL are throwing a hissy fit about the reporting being done.

    The Israelis have developed some veggies and fruit trees that do well
    around here too, neighbor of mine has an Ein Shimer apple tree that does
    well in his backyard.

    Didn't see oysters on the menu, but the non-kosher restaurants offer
    shrimp, calamari, etc.

    They invented cherry tomatoes in Israel. I made pico do gallo and
    quacamole for my cousins. They only seemed to have one kind of hot
    pepper generically called "chili pepper" but it was a tad milder than
    our jalapeno. They didn't know the term "cilantro" but I (miraculously)
    remembered it's also called coriander. That they knew. They liked the
    pico. They called the guacamole "avocado salad" but they really
    appreciated a taste of Texas.
