One of key researchers at the University of Florida who is keeping a close eye on the latest developments related to offshore drilling is Steve Otwell. Otwell is the Seafood Extension Specialist for the Florida Sea Grant Program. It’s his job to keep close tabs on the safety of Florida’s seafood product, especially since the oil spill. Otwell talked with WUFT’s Trent Kelly and says though Florida’s seafood is safe, it’s been a struggle to keep that good news before the public.
