Project Description

The RECOVER II activities represent a unique and integrative approach encompassing studies at the molecular, cellular, organ, whole animal and population level placed in the context of the Gulf of Mexico (GOM) physical and chemical environment. The overarching objective is to gain what may be the most comprehensive understanding of oil impacts on any single organism, an objective that we pursue for a coastal and a pelagic GOM fish species. This legacy will provide an exceptionally strong foundation for predicting biological endpoints most at risk during future oil spills in the context of relevant environmental factors (light, temperature, dissolved organic carbon, oxygen and currents). The RECOVER II team works almost exclusively on two important GOM predatory fishes, the coastal red drum and the pelagic mahimahi (mahi).
