Discussion of the Effects of the Gulf Oil Spill with Guy Harvey

It's been just over two years since the Deepwater Horizon well was capped, ending the largest oil spill in U.S. history. But is it really over? Over the weekend, the largest gathering of scientists since the spill met at the Tradewinds Island Resort in St. Pete Beach to discuss the damage to the Gulf - and what may yet happen.

The organizer of the event is Guy Harvey. He's an avid fisheries scientist and diver and is the namesake of The Guy Harvey Foundation. WUSF's Sarah Curran spoke to Harvey during the Gulf of Mexico Fisheries Symposium.
