KCTS on Sea Star Wasting

Post by carlk3 » Thu Feb 18, 2016 8:38 am

"During the height of the sea star die-offs in 2014, millions of stars up and down the West Coast were wasting away. At the same time, sea surface temperatures in the northeast Pacific Ocean were the warmest recorded in decades.

In a new study published Monday, scientists are confirming that warm temperatures played a part in what’s being called the single largest, most-geographically widespread marine disease that's ever been recorded."
