Oil in the Gulf still present and affecting ecosystems

Latest Gulf data shows persistent shoreline oiling & lingering subsurface plume
[Via Deep Sea News]

This public press release from Roffer’s Ocean Fishing Forecasting just appeared in my inbox, offering the latest summary of oil fate in the Gulf. You can see from these NOAA photographs that there are many shoreline areas that still show heavy shoreline oiling (red color) as of two days ago, including Breton National Wildlife Refuge.


While not a wide-ranging as some scenarios, it looks to be a persistent part of the Gulf for years.
