Oil could indeed have effects on both ectoparasites and intestinal
parasites. See many publications by R. A. Khan (Memorial University,
Newfoundland) on the subject. He has even studies winter flounder, as well
as studting parasite faunas after the Exxon Valdez oil spill. Here are just
a few of his references:

Khan and Kiceniuk 1983 J Wildl Dis 19: 253-258
Khan and Kiceniuk 1988 Bull Environ Contam Toxicol 41: 94-100
Khan et al. 1994 Can J Zool 72: 247-251
