California Coast Anomalies: Starfish Die-off, Toxic Algae Blooms, Large Squid Beachings

[Follow these developments closely, as we're about to see a huge spike in serious problems brought on by the on-going Fukushima disaster. It will only get worse unless something drastic changes for the better in Japan, which is not looking very likely. In fact, the opposite looms as each day passes. - Zen]

   A mysterious pathogen is wiping out starfish along the Pacific coast [...] [and it] isn’t the only weird thing to happen of late along the California coast. Marine scientists have been trying to find out why previously unknown blooms of toxic algae are suddenly proliferating along the coast. The mysterious blooms, including deadly red tides, have been bigger, occurred more frequently and killed more wildlife than in the past. Last year at about this time, legions of big predatory Humboldt squid gathered along the Northern California coast and stranded themselves on Santa Cruz beaches, far north of their normal habitat.

(More on the the starfish die-off HERE)

   Press Democrat, Dec. 5, 2013: An article in Nature magazine in 2010 noted that the arrival of Humboldt squid is considered a sign “of a system in trouble.”

   Here’s a local news report on the squid strandings from last December: A mysterious invasion on California beaches [...] they washed up all of a sudden on a 12 mile stretch of beach. [...] Thousands of Humboldt squid [...] “You just see them essentially killing themselves, and it’s just really weird to see it,” said graduate student Hannah Rosen of Stanford University’s Hopkins Marine Station. [...] Rosen said some people tried to put the squid back in the water, but the deep water creatures swam back to shore. [...] The animals had full stomachs [...] To be honest reasearchers have no idea why this is happening but they think its from ingesting toxic algae [...] This is the third stranding in 6 weeks.

   Press Democrat, Dec. 5, 2013: [There's an] unprecedented mass of oxygen-poor water off the Sonoma Coast, a phenomenon that could harm the region’s prized Dungeness crab and other marine life. [...] Oxygen-poor water is common in deep water of the open ocean, but until this year had never been documented over the continental shelf close to the Sonoma coast, [John Largier, an oceanographer at the UC Davis research facility on Bodega Head] said. [...] Largier said he is “fairly confident” that west coast hypoxia is a consequence of climate change, but the presumed connection is complex. [...] The vast majority of more than 400 dead zones documented around the world in a 2008 report are of a entirely different nature, created by [pollutants like] fertilizer-laden runoff from rivers and burning of fossil fuels. [...] Largier discounted that factor on the North Coast [...]
