I understand that some people are going to be in denial over this, but the evidence is right there, in your face. Come on. The chemist said "normal" expected amounts should equal 0 parts per million to 5 parts per million. Mineral oil is different chemically from petroleum oil. He tested for petroleum oil product, not mineral oil product.

Once again I visited the sea floor and all its fish Saturday north of Tampa Bay about fourteen miles out on a man made reef. Everything looked great but I think I'm going to find a way to check the water for Chemicals and toxins before I do my next dive. I don't want to have my buds and myself dieing because we were to dumb to check the water first.
Anyone know if they make some type of quick test kit like you would have for testing pool water?
FWI, I seen a huge sea turtle and many Dolphins. If you go fishing out there don't use dam balloons for bobbers!!!! We found one floating away from a fishing boat so we ran it down and took it out of the water. That could have killed any sea turtle, they eat them thinking they are jelly fish and die.
To the kid who let the big beach ball go I'm sure the dolphins thank you lol.

I wonder how much BP is paying people to come to sites, such as ATS, and blame high petroleum levels on the beach on suntan oil? In the midst of one of the biggest oil disasters in world history, it's suntan oil that's the real problem?
Nothing to see here people. Didn't you hear? The spills over. Return to normal life. Head back to the beach.
