Oil Spill Affected Gulf Fish's Cell Function, Study Finds

A minnowlike fish that is a major source of food in wetland marshes along the Gulf of Mexico is showing early signs of biological damage from the BP oil spill, a peer-reviewed study published on Monday found. Exposure to toxic chemicals from the BP disaster, which spewed 4.9 million barrels off the coast of Louisiana in 2010, has altered the gulf killfish’s cellular functions in ways that have been predictive of a lack of reproduction in other fish, according to the study, which appears in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Andrew Whitehead, a biologist at Louisiana State University and the lead author of the report, said the report was the first he knew of about biological effects on wildlife since the spill and that it was cause for “concern.” “We picked the killfish because they are ecologically important and because we knew we’d find them because they...
