Re: sea star wasting

Seeing more medium sized pycnopodias – few along Alki Pipeline and one out at Pt Townsend - but it's hard to tell if they are infected. I've counted a few mottled stars, but only a couple of ochres.

Has anyone seen any spiny pinks?

It slipped out somewhere just East of Northern Lights, between the drydock and Enhancement Way. I work too much and can't get back out there for a while. ...
