Study Shows BP Oil Spill Makes Some Fish Swim Half Speed - Presented by: The Aol. On Network

A team of researchers in Texas, Washington, and Florida looking into the environmental effects of the 2010 British Petroleum Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico have found that young fish exposed to oil swim slower than fish born in clean seawater. According to the results of the study, several species of fish were affected by exposure to oil, including mahi-mahi that swam 37 percent slower when they grew up in an oily environment.
