Biomarker Prospecting: Detection of Impacts of DHOS-related Hydrocarbon & Dispersant Discharge in North-Central Gulf of Mexico Estuaries Using Gulf Killifish, Fundulus Grandis, As an Aquatic Vertebrate Sentinel
DWH Project Funding
Known Leveraged Funding
Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (GoMRI)
Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (GoMRI) Grant Program
Human and/or Institutional Capacity
Using both field - and laboratory-derived data, we will identify specific fish biomarker responses central to the mission of rapidly assessing the environmental impact of DHOS-related hydrocarbon and dispersant discharges in the north-central Gulf of Mexico (GoM).
