The following PDF is my Masters Thesis that I completed at USF in order to earn my Masters Degree. It is about the use of Image Repair Theory and inshore charter fishing guides in the Tampa Bay Area as it pertains to the Deepwater Horizon disaster. I conducted 12 in depth interviews with local inshore guides which were then transcribed and coded in order to answer my research questions. In addition to anecdotal findings, I also make recommendations as to what oil companies should do in future spills as well as organizations in general handling a crises situation.
