The impacts of an oil spill on fisheries and mariculture activities can be categorised as direct or indirect. Direct impacts can include contamination of the boats and gear used in catching or cultivating marine species. Damage to stocks as a result of toxic or smothering effects of the oil would also be considered a direct impact.

GoM ecosystem is subject to a number of modern stressors, including habitat loss, overfishing, impacts of flood control on sediment supply, degraded water quality, and pollution resulting from activities such as oil and gas. 2. The population level, or how oil spills may impact a group of living things of the same species. 3. The community-wide level, or how oil spills may impact many different kinds of living things in an area or habitat. By dividing studies into these general levels, scientists can investigate impacts to the complex Gulf of Mexico. ecosystem.

The unprecedented volume, depth, and spatial scale of the Deepwater Horizon (DWH) oil spill created many enormous challenges for policymakers. Among these was the difficult task of restoring the ocean and coastal ecosystems of the Gulf of Mexico (GoM) to the condition they would have been in but for the spill.
