Marian Locksley's insight:

Speculation has suggested bacterial or viral sources. But invertebrate diseases can be complicated. The disease only seems to affect sea stars. Nothing else.  This implies a biological cause with a very specific relationship. Possibly a bacteria or virus. But just as possibly some other type of infection resulting from a protist or fungi?

It also seems possible that it could be a disease similar to coral bleaching, where subcuticular bacteria of sea stars (as documented here)  might be affected adversely. Or perhaps a combination? In conjunction with some environmental change, such as water temperature?  The original series of papers by Amanda Bates indicated there was an association of the diseae with water temperature.

Our study of this event has just begun. Ongoing data collection and research have started. We shall see where it takes us…

The international dispute over West Papua during the years after 1949 can be understood in light of the natural resources in the territory, which were far better known to the transnationals than revealed publicly.... http://www.cs.utexas.edu/~cline/papua/mines.htm

Marian Locksley's insight:

Global warming could cut commercial fish catches around Scotland by 20 per cent while they increase by ten per cent around the south of England, according to a new study by over 150 government and university scientists.

 

Gradually rising temperatures caused by climate pollution could driveporpoises, minke whales and white-beaked dolphins away from Scotland's shores. The sea will also become increasingly acidic, which could harm some marine wildlife, the study says.

The first “world championship” for eating pickled baby gannets, known as “guga”, has sparked new calls for a total ban on the Hebridean tradition of hunting chicks by clubbing  them with sticks.

"The guga hunt is no longer carried out for subsistence reasons, but to provide a delicacy that is eaten by a fairly small number of people. The fact that it is to be the subject of a competitive eating event only confirms that it is no longer a matter of necessity, but an anachronism."
