COREXIT appears to STILL be inside blue crab larvae says Tulane researchers in Gulf

Research teams find oil on bottom of Gulf, USA Today, October 24, 2010:

A research team on a ship called the Arctic Sunrise, sponsored by the environmental activist group Greenpeace, also turned up traces of oil in sediment samples as well as evidence of chemical dispersants in blue crab larvae...

Its trip also ended last week. ...

The three-month Greenpeace research trip aboard the Arctic Sunrise included scientists from Tulane University and Texas A&M University at Galveston, said John Hocevar, Greenpeace's oceans campaign director who participated in the expedition.

The Tulane scientists found traces of what appeared to be the dispersant Clorexit [sic], used to break up the gush of oil during the spill, in blue crab larvae, Hocevar said.
