[quote:RadChick:MV8yMDYxOTE1XzM0Njg3MTIwXzkwNjgxRUY5] Dr. Thierry Work, head of Infectious Disease for USGS [i]“Given the scale of the event, the large numbers of corals affected, and the consistent preponderance of a few agents (cyanobacteria and fungi) associated with gross lesions that look similar in both Makua (Tunnels Beach) and ‘Anini, this outbreak would have to qualify as an epidemic” “I have never seen a cyanobacterial disease like this killing corals to this degree in Hawaii” “This is truly an unusual event” “Right now I have no evidence that there’s any relationship between the coral disease and what’s happening to the turtles and fish” “We’re going to try to come out next week to look at the fish, to see what’s causing the lesions” [/i] [/quote]
Rapidly-spreading disease in Hawaii coral — New strain of cyanobacteria blamed — Fish with lesions, turtles having problems — Big concern whether infectious to humans —“Truly an unusual event”...
A report by the U.S. Geological Survey finds that an outbreak of coral disease along Kauai’s North Shore is an epidemic.
Dr. Thierry Work [...] said the disease is rapidly spreading. A report released Wednesday said microscopic changes in tissue suggest the corals are under some type of stress.
Another big concern is whether this new strain of cyanobacteria is infectious to humans and marine life. Work says he and other scientists involved in the ongoing study have spotted puffer fish with skin discoloration and unusual lesions on their fins. [...]
The bottom line, according to Work, is that Kaua‘i’s reefs are heavily degraded and infected with a rapidly-spreading white coral disease unlike any seen here before.
