Collection of mummichog from a Rhode Island salt pond six months after an oil spill washed into the pond. This salt pond was also a wildlife refuge, so canoes and traps were used to collect fish, rather than powerboats and trawls. Lawrence Chicelly (NOAA Corp) assisted NWFSC scientists with fish collections to examine fish health and contaminant exposure.

Mark Myers (NOAA Fisheries, NWFSC) is mending a trawl net used to collect winter flounder for chemical analyses. Two weeks after an oil spill washed into salt ponds along the coast of Rhode Island, NWFSC scientists were conducting studies to determine if fish health had been affected. Winter flounder were spawning in the salt ponds at the time of the spill.

The Big Bang! An old non-producing oil platform is being removed by detonating explosives below the sea floor to sever the legs. The detonation occurred after a NOAA/NMFS marine observer conducted an aerial survey to assure no sea turtles or marine mammals were in the vicinity prior to the use of explosives.
