Gulf oil spill may lead to shrimp shortage but California isn't worried

If you're planning to put some shrimp on the barbie on Memorial Day weekend, better stock up now. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced Tuesday it's nearly tripling the amount of waters in the Gulf of Mexico that are closed to fishing because of a massive oil spill off the coast of Louisiana. That'll mean a shortage of domestic shrimp over the next month, predict those in the seafood business.
