Someone posted this on the TTMB, thought it was cool to share here. Kinda addicting to watch. Ive seen Jack Cravelle, Ling, Grouper, and Sharks, plus all the other reef fish, since yesterday. Its rough out there
The Save The Blue initiative is our best bet to get anything accomplished as far as stopping the removal of the rigs. The people behind this are very savvy regarding oilfield matters, and have the backing to actually pull this thing off.
One thing that the enviros do to garner support is to show the wildlife affected by man's actions, such as an oiled bird, or dead turtle. Mr. Hoffman and Co. are in the process of creating an IMAX movie showing the incredible habitats that the oil platforms have produced. This is EXACTLY what is needed to get the word out about what the feds are doing to our fishery when they allow the rigs not only to be removed, but dynamited.
It's one thing to describe something, and quite another to see it in technicolor on the BIG screen.
Every offshore fisherman should give their support to this initiative.

Good post Joey. I looked at the 33' depth camera and I am surprised at just how much those fish are getting tossed around. Not sure where that rig is but it must have some big current and rough seas right now.
I could not stop watching!.....a barracuda came by,put it's face in the cam and showded off it's teeth ..what would swim by next,what else was there?...did learn a lot of new things about what these critters do down there..........lots of jacks and chubs.....didnt notice any snappers?...... I am in full agreement... a vidio is needed showing a rig being blown(or just being removed for that matter) and this wonderful habitat vanishing..... dl
