Marian Locksley's insight:

The western world now depends on far-off places to produce the items we once created ourselves or that different exotic food....maybe that time will return, I hope so as theres too much passage on our Seas causing various pollution.  And rely less.  Change for the better*

 

And 'yes' the Ocean and Sea workers do have one of the most dangerous occupations.

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…

#Tumor Found in #GreatWhiteShark ~ | Rescue our Ocean's & it's species from Man's Pollution! | Scoop.it
Scientists recently found tumors in bronze whaler and great white sharks, showing that the animals do in fact get cancer. This counters pseudoscientific claims that shark cartilage may treat cancer.
Marian Locksley's insight:

More info:  http://www.elasmo-research.org/education/topics/p_bite_on_cancer.htm

 

It's highly unscientific to say this is cancer.

 

It's just a tumor and there are lots of different tumors - not all are automatically cancer.

 

There are also a parasitic crustacean which look like a tumor.FYI.
