La. seafood leaders plan meeting with Obama

Hoping to bolster confidence nationwide in the safety of Louisiana seafood, some industry representatives have headed for Washington.

Harlon Pearce, a seafood processor and the chairman of the state's seafood promotion board, led a delegation to the nation's capital on Sunday. Pearce says that on Monday, the seafood representatives have an appearance planned with President Barack Obama and members of the New Orleans Saints.

Pearce said he also was making plans to create a 30-foot-long po' boy for officials in Washington. The extra-long sandwich will contain what Pearce is calling a "bipartisan" mixture: shrimp and oysters.
