There are about eleven crafts deployed together with biodegradable oil dispersants. Helicopters and personnel responded to contain the spill. It was noted that as of 5pm, there were no significant sightings of oil in the water. It is fortunate that the accident was contained and that the operation of the port is not affected.

Aside from living forms, vegetation in the water is also affected. Coral reefs will die if it is not taken care of immediately.

Local industries

Local industries (like tourism) are distressed when there are oil spills because activities such as swimming, sailing and diving are restricted.

Fishing industries

The fishing industry also suffers because of the decrease of the number of fish. The decrease can be attributed to the poisoning. Fishing boats or vessels will find it hard to sail because the oil can damage the equipments and the vessel itself.

Health of the population

Interest

Taxes
