NEW ORLEANS - There are lots of places to go fishing in Louisiana, but none as uniquely situated as Plaquemines Parish.

But Plaquemines was also the Parish hardest hit by the BP oil spill two years ago.

How is the recreation fishing industry recovering? What challenges do commercial fishermen still face? And, what is the parish doing to get tourists and businesses to return to Plaquemines?

Mike Butler from the Venice Marina and Darren Ladet with the Seafood Festival were in the studio to discuss these issues.
