Biological effects of petroleum hydrocarbons on marine organisms are dependent on their persistence and bioavailability, the ability of the organisms to accumulate and metabolize various hydrocarbons, the fate of metabolized products, and the interference of hydrocarbons with normal metabolic processes that may alter an organism's chances for Cited by: Determining$the$Potential$Release$of$Contaminants$into$the$Marine$$ Environment$from$Pacific$OCS$Shell$Mounds$ 3/24/$ Applied$Marine$Sciences,$Inc.$ i$!

lines, and regulations, over most of the history of BIO its scientists have. conducted a wide variety of research programs in eastern Canada dealing. with both oil spills and the regulated discharge of drilling wastes and pro-. duced water into the marine environment (Fig. It explores the effects of pollutants, such as petroleum hydrocarbons, heavy metals, pesticides, and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), on marine organisms ranging from pink salmon fry to sculpins, estuarine fishes and crabs, bivalve mollusks, lugworms, and oysters. Petroleum contamination is a growing environmental concern that harms both terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. However, the public and regulatory and scientific communities have given more attention to the contamination of marine habitats. This is because marine oil spills can have a serious economic impact on coastal activities, as well as on those who exploit the resources Cited by: 4.   Waste Water Petroleum Water Pollution Marine Environment Measurable Effect.

The behaviour and effects of oil pollution into marine environment and oceans The degree of water and soil deterioration has increased due to petroleum industry development (Bridjanian and. the largest source of marine contamination by petroleum seems to be the runoff from land. Annually, more than two million tons of petroleum are estimated to end up in the sea. Fortunately, petroleum introduced to the sea seems to be degraded either biologically or abiotically (Readman et al., ). In this article, the fate of petroleum in a.
