The Long Arm of BP…?

Along the shore, I notice these deep-sea jellyfish washing onshore (I usually see them wash up as far up the St. Johns as Fort Caroline)…
Granted, there are ocean-going ships (both commercial and military) that pass through the St. Johns River in/out the ocean on a daily basis, and often these ships may leak trace-amounts of fuel, oil, lubricant what-have-you but never in all the times I used to walk this beach have I seen this… such an oil-slick to this extent!
Could this be traces of last year’s disastrous BP oil-spill that eventually seeped from the Gulf around the Florida Straits and into the Atlantic via the Gulf Stream…?? Can’t confirm that it is, but the brownish color of the slick makes it look awful familiar… just sayin’.
