local.seafdecaqd.extractCoral reef fish are more likely to engage in risky behavior and be unable to identify predators if they swim in waters contaminated with petroleum-based oil, researchers said. Concentrations equivalent to only “a couple of drops in a swimming pool” could be enough to impair their judgement, scientists said in the study published Tuesday in the journal Nature Ecology & Evolution. The scientists said when the fish were exposed to increased oil concentrations in the lab tests, there were higher death rates and changed behavior.en
