CORVALLIS, Ore. -- Oregon State University researcher Stephen Brandt will be part of a team examining how the Deepwater Horizon oil spill is affecting marine life in the Gulf of Mexico.

The National Science Foundation announced Friday that the team will get $200,000 to support a weeklong effort to collect data about the condition of fish.

The information gathered in September will be compared with data the team recorded in multiple visits to the same region dating to 2003.

Brandt is an oceanographer and freshwater scientist. He is director of the Oregon Sea Grant program at OSU.
