Sep. 14, 2010 2:24 pm

Pictures can often speak louder than words. On Friday, September 10th, Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana reported a massive fish kill of pogies, redfish, drum, crabs, shrimp and freshwater eel, with a dead whale found nearby. Surprisingly scientist have also discovered a 2" layer of oil approximately 1 mile below the surface of the Gulf of Mexico with dead shrimp and fish buried beneath it. Ian MacDonald, a biological oceanographer from the Florida State University, commented:

"The oil did not disappear, it sank."
