Chemist: Dispersant was found in self-contained fish pond 1/2 mile from Alabama coast; All fish died -- Owner drained, restocked pond and second batch of fish died


Private Seafood Tests Uncover Toxins Missed By Feds, Susan Buchanan for the Huffington Post, February 8, 2011:

Analytical Chemical Testing Lab, Inc. in Mobile, Alabama... tested water in a fish pond on an Alabama property half a mile from the beach. The fresh water fish had died, and the pond water tested positive for dispersants. The owner drained, refilled and restocked the pond, and the second batch of fish died.

"We also found dispersant in swimming pools near the coast," [ACT's Robert] Naman, a chemist, said. "We suspect dispersants were sprayed on the coastline though that's illegal for the most part."

    I have been highly suspect since last year that rains carried oil inland all over this country (as many videos showed)was also carried the corexit and and what ever else was/is in the Gulf now. Over weeks I have been doing searches and found many lakes across the country have had fish kills and determined low oxygen (as early as last May) was cause. If the dispersant's is killing the planktons in water sources in lakes after being transported by rains as the oil was, have any of these kills in lakes across the country been checked for Corexit or sampled for levels of planktons in the water since plankton produces 40% of oxygen in the waters. That would cut oxygen supplies in about half to support the life in these lakes rivers as to fish kills in the Gulf and up the east coast ! More more rain carried into these lakes/rivers the more chance kills depending on size and volume of water/fish in the water contained for deadly contamination levels to arise to a kill zone of low oxygen levels. Also the algae/nutrients that is appearing in so many States lakes may indicate the that a transfer of may be coming from the Gulf region.

    Now I know there has been low oxygen fish kills for years prior but seems to be an unprecedented uptick this past year in so many areas of the country.
