In our day-to-day life, we sometimes come across in newspapers that an oil tanker collides in  mid sea and that large quantity of oil is spilled away, often accompanied by gory pictures of  sea/  marine  life. This  is  usually  followed  by  protests  by environmentalists  against  the  company demanding compensation to bring back the beauty of the sea. This is a normal show  which takes place and we the people are not aware of the problems going to be faced in the  future both economic and the environmental damages. In addition to the cost incurred in  cleaning  of  the  sea,  precious  fuel  is  lost; resulting  in  the oil price hike.  This  paper  aims  at suggesting  the  means  to  recover  the  spilt  oil  thereby saving  valuable  fuel  oil  as  well  as guarding the beauty  and safety  of  the  environment.  This paper deals with the sea which is polluted by oil, what are the causes of oil spills, how oil spill occur, what are the effects of marine-Eco system, what are the methods are available for cleanup of oil spill and latest advanced methods of recovery.
