Misterveel Rodriguez poses at his home with his grandson in Nuevo Campechito after an interview with Reuters June 9, 2010. Within a week of the explosion of Mexico's Ixtoc offshore oil well in June 1979, Misterveel Rodriguez and other village fishermen were pulling up nets choked with tarballs instead of red snapper. Until the Deepwater Horizon rig drilling BP Plc's Macondo well off Louisiana blew up in April, Ixtoc was the only catastrophic oil spill at sea that was not caused by a tanker accident or sabotage.
