Abstract

In multispecies experiments performed in microcosms with natural sediment, it was investigated how the presence of marine snow affects the fate and ecological impact of deposited oil residues. The response of different taxonomic groups like nematodes, foraminifera, crustaceans and molluscs onto the presence of marine snow with or without oil was compared with the impact of deposited oil residues without marine snow. Also the effect of the presence of marine snow on oil biodegradation and transfer for oil-derived compounds to selected biota was studied. Although not designed to mimic the specific deep sea conditions in the Gulf of Mexico, the outcome of the experiments gave new insights in how a MOSSFA event can affect the benthic community. In general the experments indicated that at field realistic oil-derived compound concentrations, the adverse impact of the marine snow on the sediment surface has a stronger impact on the benthic ecosystem than...
