A small portion of the oil from the Exxon Valdez spill still lingers in patches beneath Prince William Sound, Alaska, beaches. However, this and other studies suggests the remaining oil is sequestered, or buried, and currently is not posing a risk to the coastal and marine ecosystem. Commercial fishing was injured as a result of the spill's direct impacts to commercial fish species (see individual resource accounts) and through subsequent emergency fishing closures.
