Abstract

The main question we will be addressing is how oil spills affect fish populations, and how different fish species are affected differently. Along with the harmful effects this could have on migration and the surrounding ecosystems. The data shows the correlations between fish populations to the amount of time after the oil spill. Even taking into account the differences in temperature and migration. We will also be looking into the effect of oil spills over time, determining how long it takes for a population to return back to its original state. To produce our data we also will be looking at maps of the biggest coastal reefs ecosystems in the world and comparing them to popular spots of oil spills. It is important to recognize that not only fish are affected by oil spills but also whales, dolphins, and all other forms of aquatic life. But by looking at fish we are also able to look at the impact this could have on humans and food populations when huge fish populations are exposed to petroleum-based oils which are dangerous for humans to consume.
