With prices on seafood going up, we wanted to know if the big oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico has any effect on it.

He says the BP Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico doesn’t have any effect on the species of seafood in Canada because of the distance involved.
Sackton says however it does have an effect on the species of fish who feed on the ground dwelling creatures in the Gulf area.
The pricing on seafood is set by the Fish, Food and Allied Workers Union.
Customers not buying from restaurants also factor in on that.
