BARATARIA BAY, LA - DECEMBER 05: Shrimp boats are seen December 5, 2010 in Barataria Bay, Louisiana. Shrimping has been reopened in the area although 4,200 square miles of the Gulf of Mexico remains closed to shrimping after tarballs were found in a shrimpers net. Nearly eight months after the spill, oil remains along the shoreline of some of the barrier islands in the area and has killed off sections of marsh grass. BP lawyers said that government estimates of the size of the oil spill are too large in a dispute that will mark how many billions of dollars in fines the oil giant will have to pay.
