Gulf of Mexico Foundation

The Oil and Bilge Water Recovery Units give shrimpers a viable alternative to dumping bilge water at sea a practice which pollutes the water and endangers wildlife.

With the new pump-out units in place, shrimp boats like this one can now offload used oil and bilge water for free while they are fueling up and getting ice in Conn Brown Harbor. Similar units will soon be installed at Port Aransas Marina, Fulton Harbor, and Corpus Christi Marina.
