Contents:
Front Cover; Contents; Preface; Acknowledgments; Contributors; Reviewers; Chapter 1: Multiple Effects of Oil and Its Components in Fish; Chapter 2: Toxicological and Physiological Effects of the Surfactant Dioctyl Sodium Sulfosuccinate at Varying Salinities during Larval Development of the Gulf Killifish (Fundulus grandis); Chapter 3: Endocrine Disruption as a Mechanism of Action Underlying Sublethal Effects in Pacific Herring (Clupea harengus pallasi) Exposed to the Dissolved Hydrocarbon Fraction of Crude Oil
Chapter 4: Proper Handling of Animal Tissues from the Field to the Laboratory Supports Reliable Biomarker EndpointsChapter 5: Early Review of Potential Impacts of the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill on Gulf of Mexico Wetlands and Their Associated Fisheries; Chapter 6: A Brief Review of the Effects of Oil and Dispersed Oil on Coastal Wetlands Including Suggestions for Future Research; Chapter 7: Oil Contamination in Mississippi Salt Marsh Habitats and the Impacts to Spartina alterniflora Photosynthesis
Chapter 8: City, County, and State Methods to Protect Nearshore Fisheries Habitat in Mississippi during the Deepwater Horizon Oil SpillChapter 9: Lessons from the 1989 Exxon Valdez Oil Spill: A Biological Perspective; Chapter 10: The Exxon Valdez Oil Spill and the Collapse of the Prince William Sound Herring Stock: A Reexamination of Critical Biomass Estimates; Chapter 11: Effects of the Ixtoc I Oil Spill on Fish Assemblages in the Southern Gulf of Mexico; Chapter 12: Impacts of the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill on the Reproductive Biology of Spotted Seatrout (Cynoscion nebulosus)
Chapter 13: Impacts of the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill on Blue Crab, Callinectes sapidus, Larval Settlement in MississippiChapter 14: Oyster Responses to the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill across Coastal Louisiana: Examining Oyster Health and Hydrocarbon Bioaccumulation; Chapter 15: Occurrence of Lemon Sharks (Negaprion brevirostris) at the Chandeleur Islands, Louisiana, before and after the 2010 Deepwater Horizon Disaster; Back Cover
Summary: At an increasingly global scale, aquatic scientists are heavily entrenched in understanding the fate of marine ecosystems in the face of human-altered environments. Oil spill disasters, especially large-scale ones like the 2010 Deepwater Horizon tragedy, have left uncertain and indelible marks on marine ecosystems. Impacts of Oil Spill Disasters on Marine Habitats and Fisheries in North America contains independent scientific findings and critical reviews from experts researching the impacts of the Exxon Valdez, Ixtoc I, and Deepwater Horizon oil spills on coastal fishery resources.
