There have also been kills of starfish and other sea animals, including whales and dolphins:

And see this.Here are a couple of headlines on the issue since then courtesy of Florida Oil Spill Law:

My favorite Gulf photographer – Julie Dermansky – just sent me the following photos of the third recent fishkill in Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana:

The fishkill shots were taken on September 19th at Bayou Robinson, and the oil shots were taken the same day in Bay Jimmy.
