Exxon Valdez oil-spill recovery still is work in progress, 20 years later

Please read article, cited after the quote. Articles open in a new window.

Twenty years ago, Cordova fisherman John Renner was poised for the spring herring harvest in Prince William Sound. He had a 50-foot seiner packed with nets and fuel, and the galley loaded with deer, moose and other fixings to feed his four-person crew for up to a month.

Each day, he monitored reports from state biologists for word that the herring’s sac roe — a fish-egg delicacy in Japan — had ripened.

“The herring fishery was the pinnacle of seining,” Renner said. “It was the Super Bowl of fishing. The best, most competitive guys.”

  1. Take a look on this company!
    After years of research and development,
    Planet Resource Recovery, Inc.
    announces a remarkable ‘disruptive nanotechnology’
    listed
    under the trade name PetroLuxus.
    This unique
    Green technology is biodegradable,
    non-hazardous and its molecules are so microscopic that it can penetrate virtually any natural or manmade material, and break the bond between those materials and hydrocarbons. PetroLuxus is being utilized to increase production 100 to 500% in marginal oil wells, and is also a silver bullet for property owners, as well as state and federal environmental agencies in the remediation of contaminated soil and water, making it possible for the first time to recover hydrocarbons and precious metals from soil that would otherwise be hauled away and burned to ash.
