Though purely anecdotal, I have noticed a larger amount of shark sightings further up the East Coast then I am used to. Specifically, from the inlet of Long Island Sound up to Cape Cod. Obviously I have heard of more sightings of their prey too, more seals for example.

Could the Gulf oil spill have actually forced the entire ecosystem to "move up" or "shift" North? They say the oil won't travel but could it have triggered a realignment of a few hundred miles?
