The US state of Louisiana has opened its waters from the Mississippi River Delta to the Mississippi state line for commercial fishing following closures due to the BP oil spill in April.

The Louisiana Government, in cooperation with the US Food and Drug Administration, has opened the waters after extensive testing of sea food, which was found to be safe for consumption.

Other areas, however, will remain closed to Louisiana’s fishing and shrimping community.

In the wake of the spill, up to a third of federal Gulf of Mexico fishing waters were closed .
