Abstract This study was initiated following the 1977 Bouchard No. 65 fuel oil spill in Buzzards Bay, Massachusetts. Its major objectives were to evaluate the techniques used to clean up and/or mitigate damage from this spill and make recommendations of feasible alternative methods that may be used in future spills in similar environmental conditions; to inventory and evaluate EPA sampling techniques and problems; and to assess the environmental damage caused by the spill. Because of the unusual ice and weather conditions at Buzzards Bay during and after the spill, much of the cleanup effort relied on methods and equipment rarely used before. Modifications of existing techniques are necessary if future spills in similar conditions are to be treated more successfully. Unlike previous No. 2 spills in the bay, acute biological effects were not observed. Severe biological damage was probably prevented by the entrapment of oil in both shore-fast and free-flowing ice.
