The impacts of the Deepwater Horizon (DWH) oil spill on marine fish populations of the northern Gulf of Mexico are largely unknown. Of particular concern in the wake of the DWH event was the fate of pelagic fish eggs and larvae that were present in the water column at the time, as these are the most vulnerable life stages.
