LOUISIANA (FOX44) - 16 months after the BP oil spill, Louisiana shrimpers say they're still struggling.
Kim Champlin has been a shrimper for 35 years, and he says the combination of low shrimp prices, high gas prices, and the lingering myth of bad shrimp are making things nearly impossible.

Champlin says extra hours and long nights aren't unusual just to make ends meet.

He says he's so passionate about what he does, he's not giving up.
