Alarming” mass die-off of starfish in areas along Canada’s Pacific coast — “They’ve disintegrated, now there’s just goo left” — “Appeared to melt” — “Single arms clinging to rock faces, tube feet still moving” — Similar reports as far away as California (VIDEO)


Canadian Press, Oct. 7, 2013: Vancouver Aquarium ‘alarmed’ at mass die-off of starfish on B.C. ocean floor [...] aquarium staff don’t know just how far-reaching the “alarming” epidemic has been, and whether this and other sea star species will recover. “They’re gone. It’s amazing,” said Donna Gibbs, a research diver and taxonomist on the aquarium’s Howe Sound Research and Conservation group. “Whatever hit them, it was like wildfire and just wiped them out.” [...] Aquarium staff don’t know the cause because they have had trouble gathering specimens for testing, as starfish that looked healthy in the ocean turned up as goo at the lab. [...] “We’re just not sure yet if it’s all the same thing,” Gibbs said. “They’re dying so fast.” [...] The collaboration came about after a graduate student collected starfish for a research project and then watched as they “appeared to melt” in her tank. [...]

Global News, Oct. 3, 2013: [...] starfish wasting or completely disintegrating ever since early September. “Now they are gone. They have disintegrated, and now there is just goo left,” says research diver and taxonomist Donna Gibbs. “So we are trying to see as much as we can really fast and get reports from divers in other areas to see how widespread this is.” […] “It is shocking to see them all dead. They are just gone. And, are they coming back? We want them back. B.C. is known for its sea stars. We have more species here than anywhere else in the world.” [...]

National Geographic, Sept. 9, 2013: [...] “It really struck a chord in other divers who were seeing it on Facebook and social media, both locally and as far away as California, who had been seeing similar things,” [marine biologist Jonathan] Martin said. [...] Martin wrote to invertebrate expert Christopher Mah, a researcher at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. [...] he said: “(The starfish) seem to waste away, ‘deflate’ a little, and then just … disintegrate. The arms just detach, and the central disc falls apart. It seems to happen rapidly, and not just dead animals undergoing decomposition, as I observed single arms clinging to the rock faces, tube feet still moving, with the skin split, gills flapping in the current. [...] we did our second dive in an area closed to fishing, and in absolutely amazing numbers. The bottom from about 20 to 50 feet [6 to 15 meters] was absolutely littered with arms, oral discs, tube feet, gonads and gills … it was kind of creepy.” [...] Yet what’s especially alarming to Martin, Mah, and other marine biologists is the fact that this die-off might not be restricted to P. helianthoides or the northern Pacific. [...] Fisheries and Oceans Canada is worried enough that they’ve asked Martin to go back out and collect samples for them to test in the lab. [...]

What they do not mention is that the bottom sediment is where heavy radioactive elements end up, concentrated.

"Starfish (Protoreastor nodosus) were used as their immune systems are very similar to a human’s and contain a large portion of the human genome."

I agree, it is quite alarming. However more people will be more interested in some fake doom then the real doom.
Thank you for sharing.

Another thought, this will only gain attention when the people on the West coast who eat and swim in the Pacific get extremely sick. Till then, it's only sea life nothing wrong here...

Whatever caused it, I'll take it as a sign.


Something about abusing the power of a star and the starfish as the canary in the mine... melting/meltdown - starfish/core.


We've been avoiding Pacific sea food for a couple months now. Motherfuckers.

I think the silence of their catastrophe it sad.

The video of that reminded me of going to sleep and alls well. Then waking up early to find snow over 13ft deep and flakes the size of softballs still falling.

They just fall like snow flakes not a sound just floating down dying like snow flakes to the bottom of the sea.

But they are living creatures they actually feel and sense.
Its like they just go away like a snow flake on a warm ground.

Yet they are alive and dying.

That was so pitiful.

I would only hope that is something that by that cause brings a better effect for all the rest. Kind of like a way to balance out as the man said so the others could continue to live.

I would hate to think it was just their loss.

And ours to.
