The Gulf of Mexico oil spill has been described as the biggest environmental disaster in US history.
BBC reporter Robyn Bresnahan has been travelling round Louisiana meeting local people whose livelihoods have suffered.
The restaurant scene in New Orleans is famous for its seafood gumbos, jambalayas and fried oysters, but some restaurants are changing their menus because they are finding some people are afraid to order seafood because of fears it might be tainted.
Robyn went to one fishing village in Louisiana to see how the disaster has affected families who have been fishing for generations.
The spill is not only affecting fishing families in economic terms, but psychologically too.
Robyn went to a centre in rural Louisiana that has begun to offer them counselling.
