Bait fish hold key to monitoring gulf oil spill effects, conference concludes, St. Petersburg Times, November 09, 2010:
Both Hogarth and John Hammond, regional executive director of the National Wildlife Federation, mentioned that some of the data that's been gathered about the spill's impact has yet to be made public.
USF's first research trip after the spill gathered samples that were turned over to the federal government for use as evidence in the case against the companies blamed for the rig's April 20 explosion. So far, he said, the government has not shared the results.
"There's been a lot of data that's gone into the system that we have not seen," Hogarth said.
