Beach Fuel Spill Part III
This photo is from today's SDUT website. I wish the photo was bigger but it is a good view of the Beacon's kelp beds. You can see the Coast Guard corralling the fuel in kelp bed on the left and if you look closely you can see the slick covering the kelp bed on the right.
The media and the powers that be are claiming this spill did not harm the kelp or the beach but I find that highly doubtful.
Burning question: Did the recently laid Grunion eggs survive the diesel fuel soaking? What effect will the fuel soaked sand have on shore birds that feed on invertebrates in the tide line?
