It was reported recently by National Geographic that dispersants used on the Gulf Oil Spill remained in the Gulf waters for months. The report says that, in all probability, this has had a negative impact on deepwater sealife. National Geographic reports the new study found chemicals pumped directly into the oil flowing out of the Deepwater Horizon wellhead got stuck at about 3,000 feet. The chemicals then lingered for at least three months after the well was capped. Nobody can say exactly what the overall impact on life in the Gulf will be, but preliminary studies suggest the dispersant severely affected deepwater coral. We believe this is a most serious matter with consequences that will have adverse effects for years.
