Video | September 1, 2010

In late August, Dr. Erin Grey and Dr. Caz Taylor of Tulane University gathered samples of plankton, the very foundation of the Gulf food web. This includes the larvae of blue crabs which is an ecologically and economically important species. They will study the number and condition of the larvae near the oil spill site, and away from it, to determine if the oil has had a negative impact on the blue crab population. The Greenpeace ship Arctic Sunrise is on a three month scientific expedition to discover where the oil from the BP Deepwater Horizon disaster has gone, and what short and long term impacts it will have on the marine life in the Gulf of Mexico.
