MSSA Calls for Oil Spill Plan

The Maryland Saltwater Sportfishermen’s Association (MSSA) is calling on Maryland’s legislators, the coast guard, and state agencies involved with natural resources and the environment in an effort to prepare and plan for the worst should oil make its way up the East Coast and into Maryland waters.

The Gulf Stream travels from the southern tip of Florida up the east coast and is essential to the marine and coastal life that recreational fishermen enjoy. When the Gulf Loop Current carries the oil and some toxic dispersant chemicals used for oil cleanup to the tip of Florida, these toxins will inevitably travel up the coast in the Gulf Stream.
