Cedar Key's most imminent risk is not oil in the waters, Leslie Sturmer, University of Florida Aquaculture Extension Agent, said after a briefing Tuesday.
“The biggest risk right now is losing market. We don’t want people to be afraid of the seafood. It’s safe,” Sturmer said. “Our growers, our harvesters, our wholesalers, our buyers and our consumers need to know – our seafood is safe. We don’t have oil here.”
