A Boater’s Guide to Handling Oil and Fuel Spills

With the start of the summer season, we hope you are enjoying time on the water. With that in mind, we have created a Gulf-wide one-page guide on how to prepare for and respond to an accidental oil or fuel spill on your own vessel. This fact sheet—printed on waterproof paper for on-board storing—will tell you what products to have in place to prevent and/or contain leaking oil and which authorities to call for help in every Gulf state. Like our products and want to help us spread the word? Please email Monicawilson447@ufl.ed if you would like to order hard copies of this or any of our other outreach publications in bulk for distribution.
