Behind the scenes on the Gulf Coast

New Orleans, Lousisiana- June 15: Anderson Cooper interviews Al and Sal Sunseri, the president and vice president of the P&J Oyster Company, an oyster processor and distributor famous in Louisiana. P&J has been in business for over 130 years. P&J have had their oyster supply dry up as local oyster beds have been declared unfit for fishing due to the Deepwater Horizon disaster and the BP oil spill.

    Anderson, I am the girl who shouted out to you last week from the crowd about P&J Oyster House closing while you were filming AC360. Thank you so much for telling P&J's story. I am so proud of you and it has been an honor to meet you. Please keep telling our story. The nation needs to know these things are happening due to BP's negligence to clean up oil spill in timely manner.
