Continuous bottom long line surveys in Gulf waters have established a new pre-spill baseline of oil spills. Studies of fish health include:

  • Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbon (PAH) levels in fish bile, muscle and livers to study oil metabolism.
  • Immunotoxicity

Podcasts from The Loop

The Loop is a series of podcasts which take an in depth look at C-IMAGE research. Partnering with Mind Open Media reporters Ari Daniel Shapiro and David Levin, our researchers share the importance of their studies and how they help our understanding of oil spills. David and Ari have produced eight podcasts and have more in the queue. The podcasts are linked below. Plug in and learn about our research!
