Other types of seafood could be affected by the disaster, as well. F. Rozzo & Sons, a purveyor to luxury hotels and restaurants here, buys some red snapper and grouper from Florida-based fishing companies. Proprietor Louis Rozzo said he reads the regular reports from the National Marine Fisheries Service to make sure his vendors are fishing in areas that are not contaminated by the oil spill. “It was never important for me to read those reports before,” he added.
