Or it could be a million gallons of dispersant put it there. Just haven't found the bulk of it yet.
I know some of it is off the coast of Pensacola Beach on the bottom. They found that much of it in about 60 feet of water. And not a microbe having lunch in sight.
Funny thing about that. I don't know where "they" were, but I dived off Pensacola, in about 100', then in about 80', a month ago. Then dived off Orange Beach last Monday, in about 80' and then around 70'. Couldn't find any oil, or traces, anywhere. Not saying it ain't out there, just not where I was. Nor where anyone else who's been running either dive boat was, either.
