Last night, PBS did a report on the Gulf, but it was specific to the oyster populations.

While there are large areas that have had little to no impact, other oyster bed areas along the coast are reporting mortality rates as high as 80 percent. In Barataria Bay, one of Louisiana's most productive oyster fisheries, some beds on the eastern side of the bay are at 60 percent dead, although it's not clear yet if this is due to oil or low salinity...

I love that we've moved from trying to stop mass kills, and just try and figure out what the hell happened. :cry:
