Scientists conducted exposure experiments on Gulf killifish populations with known adaptions to common environmental contaminates to determine how rapid adaptation affects future fish health.
A team of researchers from Texas, Florida, and California successfully quantified the gene expression of wild Fundulus grandis, commonly known as Gulf killifish, from the northern Gulf of Mexico in assessing exposure to toxicants from the 2010 oil spill.
Scientists from Louisiana State University, University of California-Davis, and Clemson University, studying Deepwater Horizon impacts on killifish from oiled Louisiana estuaries…
Crude oil toxicity continued to sicken a sentinel Gulf Coast fish species for at least more than a year after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico
Why would scientists select a small marsh minnow to help them understand the impacts of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill?
Fish living in Gulf of Mexico marshes exposed to last year’s oil spill have undergone cellular changes that could lead to developmental and reproductive problems, a group of researchers reported Monday in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
