A Whale near BP’s Oil Spill Thursday, July 1st, 2010
The University of Southern Mississippi further said that taking mouthfuls of thick oil slick is not conducive to them surviving. According to Eric Hoffmayer of the USM Gulf Coast Research Laboratory, the heavy oil can clog the cartilage filter pads of the whale sharks that direct food to their throats and it also can coat their gills.
He further said that three of world’s largest fish was spotted only four miles away from the oil spill site as they migrate north in the late spring to feed off the mouth of Mississippi River.
Washington’s blog points us to the the photos below showing just why BP and the Federal Government have suspended the constitution and has made it a felony crime punishable by jail time and a $40,000 fine for anyone that approaches boom, spill, workers or clean up vessels.

"I've never seen anything like it," says David Willman, who has nearly 15 years' experience captaining supply boats that support oil rigs and drilling platforms in the Gulf of Mexico. "We're seeing pods of whales and dolphins out in the oil and lots of dead things," he tells me. "Things I've never seen before coming up from the deep that look like sea cucumbers floating dead. Man o' wars floating dead with shriveled tentacles." Willman is captain of the Noonie G., an 111-foot supply boat owned by Guilbeau Marine, a company based in Cut Off, LA. He's been working out of Venice, Louisiana for about ten years ferrying fuel, water, and other supplies to offshore oil operations.
He's not the only one seeing oiled and dead sea life: A research team from Texas A&M University out on the Gulf in June also reported what looked to be hundreds of dead sea cucumbers but were actually invertebrates in the tunicate family that are important to the marine food web. Other research teams have seen dead man o' war jellyfish as well.
Thousands of dead fish reported at mouth of Mississippi August 24, 2010
The fish were found Sunday floating on the surface of the water and collected in booms that had been deployed to contain oil that leaked from the BP spill in the Gulf of Mexico, the Times-Picayune reported.
"By our estimates there were thousands, and I'm talking about 5,000 to 15,000 dead fish," St Bernard Parish President Craig Taffaro was quoted as saying in a statement.
He said crabs, sting rays, eel, drum, speckled trout and red fish were among the species that turned up dead.
Taffaro said there was some recoverable oil in the area, and officials from the state's wildlife and fisheries division were sampling the water.
But he added, "We don't want to jump to any conclusions because we've had some oxygen issues by the Bayou La Loutre Dam from time to time."
Whale Sharks Killed, Displaced by Gulf Oil? The Gulf oil spill occurred in crucial habitat for the world's largest fish. Published September 24, 2010
For instance, certain toxic ingredients of oil—and even the chemical dispersants used during the cleanup—could potentially cause long-term problems for whale sharks and many other species. Those may include compromised endocrine or immune response systems, scientists note. (See related blog: "Gulf Seafood With a Side of Oil Dispersant?")
Whale sharks filter a lot of water through their mouths and gills—almost 160,000 gallons (605,000 liters) of water an hour—as they feed on tiny plankton and fish.
Efforts to Limit the Flow of Spill News Published: June 9, 2010 When the operators of Southern Seaplane in Belle Chasse, La., called the local Coast Guard-Federal Aviation Administration command center for permission to fly over restricted airspace in Gulf of Mexico, they made what they thought was a simple and routine request. www.nytimes.com/2010/06/10/us/10access.html

BP Media Clampdown: No Photos Of Dead Animals, Please Updated: 08- 2-10 05:12 AM
Indeed, when I ran into some [cleanup workers] packing up on the Grand Isle beach twenty minutes later, I asked them only if they were done working for the day, and they refused to tell me. One woman said, "I can't talk to you," and then another worker ran up to her and grabbed her arm and said, "Just ignore her, ignore her," and the whole interaction was unsettlingly rude and sort of sad. The workers who were staying next to me in my Grand Isle motel last week told me that when BP (not, in this case, and for the record, a subcontractor) had instructed them that they couldn't talk to the press, it'd involved a warning that media organizations would go so far as to dub audio propaganda over their videotaped commentary, putting unflattering words in their mouths.
"There is a lot of coverup for BP. They specifically informed us that they don't want these pictures of the dead animals. They know the ocean will wipe away most of the evidence. It's important to me that people know the truth about what's going on here," the contractor said.
As Allison KilKenny puts it: "In a sane world, a company guilty of gross negligence that resulted in the deaths of 11 workers would be under criminal investigation, and not be parading around the coast, telling the media where they can go and who they can talk to, while forbidding their clean-up crews from wearing protective gear."
Biologist have found ‘dead zones’ around the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. - Methane at 100,000 times normal levels have created oxygen-depleted areas devoid of life near BP’s Deepwater Horizon spill. - Scientist have detected what they describe as “Astonishingly high” levels of methane, or natural gas, bubbling from the well site, this sets off a chain reaction that sucks the oxygen out of the water. Methane concentrations are 100,000 times normal levels, in some cases. - The animals are going away from the oil spill, where there is oxygen depletion. - Scientist studying the effects of the spill at that depth, said the ruptured well was producing up to 50% as much methane as other gases as oil. - Scientist suggest the high volume of methane coming out of the well could upset the ocean food chain. Such high concentrations would trigger the growth of microbes, which break up the methane, but also gobble up the oxygen needed by marine life to survive, driving ou other living things. griffyclan007.wordpress.com/2010/06/21/bp-oil-spill-disaster/
