State marine officials say Alabama's coastal waters may be re-opened for fishing if samples pass lab tests in the next several days.
Shrimp, oyster and fish samples from the Mississippi Sound will go to a lab in Pascagoula for sensory testing, then to a federal Food and Drug Administration lab to make sure they are safe to consume.
Public health officials are also reassessing the need for swimming advisories on Alabama's beaches.
Although they plan on changing red warning flags to yellow, they're still urging beachgoers to stay out of visibly-oily water.
