“Entire food web at risk” say researchers just back from Gulf: OIL “may be HIDDEN in LARGE MARINE MAMMALS” — “Discolored” zooplankton found


Degraded Oil From BP Spill Coats Gulf Seafloor, LiveScience, September 21, 2010 5:45 p.m. EDT:

Excerpt

[While in the Gulf from September 17-19, reasearchers] found oil on the seafloor, evidence that it may be in the food chain, and signs that it may be hidden in large marine mammals.

When this starts to pile up on the sea floor, the entire food web is at risk, the researchers said. The oceanographers also discovered discolored zooplankton, which eat the food chain's primary producers ­– phytoplankton – near oily clouds, [Columbia oceanographer Ajit] Subramaniam said.

    Oh, yeah, but our Gulf seafood is safe to eat. I've eaten my last Amberjack, shrimp, redfish, and crab, folks. If it says "Gulf seafood," believe me, you don't want it. And I come from a family with commercial fishermen in it.

  • I hear ya. And no more pork either. There was a video where hog farmers were in the Gulf catching fish for protein feed for their hogs. Looks like I might be going Vegetarian.

  • yeah right right

    From the protocols...

    poison their air. water, and food.

    The worlds oceans are doomed due to this. This toxic crap will spread with the animals. If that isn't bad enough, now the GOM has no ability to produce 02. You can already feel the difference in the air quality. And with the methane seeps it's going to cause a lot of heath problems. I hope people know that BP didn't fix the seafloor, how could they? Oil and gas will leak until it runs dry. I fear we haven't seen nothing yet. Wait until the first storm. I don't know if the well or the seafloor can endure much more. What a scary thought that is....
