The man in charge of the Gulf oil spill response is in Plaquemines Parish today

Coast Guard Adm. Paul Zukunft will tour Gulf coast marshes to look for signs of oil.

He will also visit with participates in the vessels of opportunity program which puts commercial fishermen to work helping with the oil cleanup.
