    If the government says it's ok then there is something wrong with it. So hell no.

    No. I've seen the video clips of fisherman pulling up things from the bottom covered with sludge. It's highly likely that the dispersants BP used caused crud to settle on the Gulf floor. The oil did not just evaporate.
