In the wake of the BP oil spill, U.S. agencies need research plans to collect data that will aid in managing and assessing marine species and ecosystems. The 2010 BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico (GoM) has damaged marine ecosystems and jeopardized endangered and commercial species under U.S. jurisdiction (see the figure). Agencies that manage protected species—including the U.S. National Marine Fisheries Service and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service—are tasked with… Expand
