Marine Life and Business Damage

Often, the marine life that resides in the water near the spill becomes contaminated, and even birds in the area can suffer damages.

How You Can Be Affected

After an oil spill, more than just the marine life can change. Businesses in the immediate area surrounding the spill can also suffer from the loss of marine life or contamination of seafood. This can lead to the following damages:

  • A reduction in tourism
  • A loss of food supply
  • A loss of product supply
  • Marine life contamination

Although the direct damage to marine life is almost always emphasized after an oil spill, sometimes people forget to think of the indirect damages, such as businesses that also suffer due to the loss of marine life.
