Alabama seafood industry survives Isaac

Posted: Updated:

Alabama's seafood industry survived Hurricane Issac with little damage compared to Katrina seven years ago, but the storm could still cost millions in lost work. Dozens of shrimp boats remain tied up at docks in Bayou La Batre, and processing plants are closed. But the storm caused virtually no damage to buildings or vessels.

The Organized Seafood Association of Alabama says the storm could cost the industry as much as $3 million in lost sales. The Gulf Coast seafood industry likely won't resume operating before next week at the earliest, and the shutdown could last longer where there was more damage in Louisiana and Mississippi.
