BP cleanup worker photographs SUBMERGED fishkill — “I can only imagine how many were on the bottom” (PHOTO)


Evidence Mounts of BP Spraying Toxic Dispersants, Dahr Jamail for Truthout, September 13th, 2010:

The next day, August 6, found [BP Vessel Of Opportunity (VOO) worker Shirley Tillman] logging more death. “Last night on the news, they reported a fish kill. Before we went to work, I went to the beach by the harbor. The seagulls were everywhere. As for the dead fish, the only ones on the beach, were ones that the tide had left when it went back out. The rest of the ‘Fish Kill,’ was laying underwater, on the bottom. It was mainly flounder and crab. We only spotted two dead flounder floating that day. I can only imagine how many were on the bottom … I went back to the beach after work. The tide had gone out and the seagulls were eating all the dead fish that had been exposed. You could still see dead fish underwater, still on the bottom. Dead fish don’t float anymore?
