This study was undertaken to determine the effects of No. 6 oil on marine communities of Casco Bay, Maine and to assess the effectiveness of containment and cleanup operations. Areas studied included rocky intertidal, intertidal mud, and sub-tidal benthic. Comparable control stations were chosen at Bailey Island and Orrs Island. Stations were analyzed for density and diversity of species as an indicator of stress. Sediments and selected biota were analyzed for No. 6 oil by gas chromatography. Results showed contamination at all stations, even those chosen as controls, indicating that the ultimate disposition of the oil did not correspond to sightings of surface slicks immediately following the spill.
