Immediatly following the "Amoco Cadiz" oil spill, the SEPNB carried out health centers for oiled birds from Finistere, and estimated the impact of the oil spill on seabirds. In the whole, 15 to 20000 birds are dead because of the "Amoco Cadiz" oil spill. 41 species have been oiled, among which 35 usually live in marine environment. The species most stressed belong to alcidae. The mortality rate (0,1 bird/ton of oil) seems to be at present day, the lowest rate never mentioned in the Litterature.
