Report Details

Note- Documentation from 1996: Sea star wasting observed and photographed in 1996 by Nancy Chase:"When I talked to you (Fawn) at the conference I mentioned that I had observed some disintegrating sea stars in the past. I'm sending you scans of photos taken at the Roads End tidepools (south end of Mile 246 &north end of mile 245, June 1996. The first two show sea stars releasing from the rock, caught out in heavy rain, but they looked lumpy and unhealthy. Photo #3 shows the viscous slime from the arm of the sea star, lower right corner. Photo # 4 shows a sea star minus an arm, apparently recovering, and #5 shows the rock that they all were on, near each other. This all might be showing the natural cycle but I had never seen anything like it before, so I thought you might be interested in seeing what I was talking about."
