In this video, the first of a series on the Gulf Coast oil spill, the WSWS interviews Dean Blanchard, the owner of a shrimp processing and distribution company located in Grand Isle, Louisiana. Like many others, his business has been ruined by the oil spill that has contaminated the gulf of Mexico and largely destroyed shrimping and fishing in the region.
