Contents Notes The following surveys were done to assess the impact of oil that was spilled in the vicinity of Cabo Rojo, Puerto Rico. The first survey began within a week of the spill and the second was done three months later. There was a pattern to the behavior of the oil and its effect. Regardless of ecological domains, e.g., mangroves or Thalassia beds, the oil first affected the epibenthic and intertidal communities. The oil penetrated the sediments shortly after the spill but the impact on the benthic infauna was not clearly seen until three months following the spill.
