Abstract: The Gulf of Mexico encompasses diverse aquatic ecosystems that support both high inherent biodiversity and ecological functions critical for maintaining significant human food sources. There is no question that the Gulf oil spill has had direct impacts on these ecosystems, and it is likely that these ecological consequences will continue to proliferate and expand well into the future. There are many challenges to be faced in the ecological recovery of the Gulf of Mexico, and both innovative approaches for restoration and larger-scale social changes will likely be necessary to achieve even a modest level of recovery.
