Oil Spill Update from San Francisco
From Greg Barron, Director of West Coast Shark Ops: "The spill is in Bay and inshore waters mostly and does not really affect the Farallons... hopefully. As bad as it is in the Bay, the open ocean doesn't seem to be oiled that bad. We'll find out tomorrow though for sure. This unfortunately, will be a big object lesson on pollution and environmental damage for us up close and personal. As it is, all the local bay beaches are closed including Angel Island. This is a topic that I am sure will be running around the boat for the next couple weeks. Hopefully we can impress the passengers with the severity and the way this impacts all the life it touches."
