Might be able to protect from the virus' consequences. But should we? As the piece points out, the virus has been in the starfish for a very long time with no ill effect. Maybe it actually is a built in population control that we interfere with at our peril.
As far as we know every species has a crash method when it becomes too numerous. The article intimates that might be the situation.
