Where Have All the Fish Gone? February 18, 2011 8:24 am
Something is wrong with the Gulf fish populations, and it’s having an impact across the region. Veteran fishermen are reporting a disturbing scarcity of fish. Boats sit idle, while both commercial fishermen and charter captains grow increasingly anxious about the future of Gulf fisheries.
In a recent TV report, commercial fisherman Jerry Luke told WJHG in Panama City that he “…caught more crabs last year in one day than I’ve caught this whole season, so that goes to tell you that something’s wrong.”
The report also quotes Jack Rudloe, a marine biologist in Panacea, who discounts cold weather as a cause. “It’s been a very cold year, but we’ve had cold years before… But if we go out there now, drop a net, we’re not going to catch many fish at all,” he says.
It’s an understatement worth repeating as the “Mission Accomplished” crowd tries to sweep these troubling issues under the rug.
Scientist finds Gulf bottom still oily, dead February 19, 2011
This Dec. 1, 2010 photo provided by the University of Georgia, made from the submarine Alvin, shows dead brittle stars on a still-damaged sea floor about 10 miles north of the BP oil rig accident. Brittle stars are normally bright orange and tightly wrapped around corals, but these were white and loose. “We consistently saw dead fauna (animals) at all these sites,” said Marine biologist Samantha Joye of the University of Georgia. “It’s likely there’s a fairly large area impacted,” she said.

Dolphin, Manatee Deaths Baffle Scientists These animals have been dying at near-record levels, raising the alarm and a whole host of questions.

Eighty-three bottle-nosed dolphins, more than half of them newborns, were found dead in January and February along the coasts of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida, where millions of barrels of oil from a leaking undersea well poured into the Gulf of Mexico over three months.
Rocky Kistner: Sea Turtle Deaths Mount in the Gulf By Dillinger, on April 3rd, 2011
Like the dolphin strandings this year, it’s likely that many more turtles have died and will never be found. A recent study of dolphin deaths showed the true number of mortalities is probably 50 times what is recovered. As of Friday, NOAA says recent deaths of sea turtles, all of which are included on the Endangered Species list, include 6 in Alabama, 10 in Louisiana, and 47 in Mississippi.

Gagging order on scientists probing dolphin deaths as U.S. builds criminal case against BP
By Daily Mail Reporter Last updated at 12:39 PM on 26th March 2011
The secrecy has angered many in the scientific community who are used to making their findings public and the free flow of information, Reuters reports.
One biologist, who has been tracking dolphin deaths for more than 20 years and does not want to be named, said: 'This throws accountability right out the window. We are confused and angry because they claim they want team work, but at the same time they are leaving the marine experts out of the loop completely.'

OK. No More. I truly am finished.
There really is no place for me in this shitty, poisoned, war-happy world.
In just a year's time, life has gone from a nice walk to a forced march.
Here's why: New HUGE motherfucking fresh Oil slick trailing back to near the BP Deep Water Horizon Environmental Disaster site. Natural Resources Defense Council also at Huffington Post. We'll know very soon who's to blame for this new attack on Humanity, and Sea life.
Now, here's TEPCO, making BP look like fucking saints.
The Fascists are winning at every goddamn level, and there's nothing we can do, aside from getting violent, to stop them. Either we kill them ALL, or please-- just kill me I need off this shitty planet as soon as possible.
Between cumulative radiation and a guaranteed fresh wave of Corexit rain, planting in my gardens is useless, and hopeless. It will either be destroyed by the Corexit, like last year, or rendered inedible by the fucking radiation. MotherFUCKERS.
Sick fish suggest oil spill still affecting gulf In Print: Sunday, April 17, 2011
A year after the Deepwater Horizon disaster spewed oil into the Gulf of Mexico, the Florida beaches are relatively clean, the surf seems clear and the tourists are returning. But there are signs that the disaster is continuing to affect marine life in the gulf far from where humans can observe it.
Over the winter, anglers who had been working the gulf for decades began hauling in red snapper that didn't look like anything they had seen before.
The fish had dark lesions on their skin, some the size of a 50-cent piece. On some of them, the lesions had eaten a hole straight through to the muscle tissue. Many had fins that were rotting away and discolored or even striped skin. Inside, they had enlarged livers, gallbladders, and bile ducts.
Some red snapper caught in the area of the oil spill have severe fin rot, particularly on their anal fins. A healthy fish would be able to fight off such infections, scientists say. They suspect that the immune systems have collapsed as a result of a toxin.
