Official on massive fishkills: “Testing results show the fish have OIL IN THEIR GILLS AND LIVER”


Fish Deaths, Fishy Explanations, Discover Magazine, October 12, 2010:

A statement issued by the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries released the day after the fish kill stated the fish died from low oxygen levels and was not caused by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

P.J. Hahn, the Director of the Coastal Zone Management Department, points out the the LDWF came to that conclusion without taking any water or fish samples of the area.

P.J. Hahn: “We had three fish kills in eight days, all in areas that were heavily oiled during the Deep Horizon Oil spill... All kills covered areas approximately two square miles in size. I collected water and fish samples and turned them over to our DA’s office. Early independent testing results show the fish have oil in their gills and liver. Now a more detail testing will indicate the fingerprint of the oil to see if it matches the BP Deep Horizons oil.”
