                Casitas in Florida Keys Sanctuary Endanger Lobsters/Habitat... Casitas Spanish for “little house”
                Creates problems in Keys... when placed in the seagrass beds of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, would
                be the perfect home for the spiny lobster (absent the picket fence). But this artificial habitat makes easy pickings for
                poachers to harvest thousands of lobsters a day, & it’s destroying the seagrass beds & hardbottom communities that
                lobsters, fish, and other marine life need to survive. Enforcement of casitas has been a top management priority for
                Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary for a number of years. NOAA law enforcers have removed more than 2,000
                of these illegal structures. While the actual number of illegal casitas is unknown, there are reliable estimates that as
                many as 20,000 have been placed throughout the Sanctuary and adjacent waters. this info provided by NOAA.

                As per NOAA: "Watching Invasion!" - "Asian Tiger Shrimp Sightings Prompts Scientific Look at Invasion Concerns. The
                recent sightings of non-native Asian tiger shrimp off the U.S. Atlantic & Gulf of Mexico coasts has government scientists
                working to determine the cause of the increase and the possible consequences for native fish and seafood in those
                waters. Researchers from the U.S. Geological Survey and National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration are working
                with state agencies from North Carolina to Texas to look into how this transplanted species from Indo-Pacific, Asian &
                Australian waters reached U.S. waters, and what the increase in sightings means for native species. NOAA scientists are
                launching a research effort to understand more about the biology of these shrimp & how they may affect the ecology
                of native fisheries and coastal ecosystems. As with all non-native species, there are concerns over the potential for novel
                avenues of disease transmission and competition with native shrimp stocks, especially given the high growth rates &
                spawning rates compared with other species."  See for more info... & Lionfish continue to menace  the Keys!

                 Update Jan. 20, 2016: "Study Shows Some Gulf Dolphins Severely Ill"... Bottlenose dolphins in Barataria Bay, Louisiana,
                 are showing signs of severe ill health, according to NOAA marine mammal biologists and their local, state, federal &
                 other research partners. Barataria Bay, located in the northern Gulf of Mexico, received heavy & prolonged exposure
                 to oil during the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.  Based on comprehensive physicals of 32 live dolphins from Barataria Bay
                 in the past summers, preliminary results show that many of the dolphins in the study are underweight, anemic, have
                 low blood sugar and/or some symptoms of liver and lung disease. Nearly half also have abnormally low levels of the
                 hormones that help with stress response, metabolism and immune function. Researchers fear that some of the study
                 dolphins are in such poor health that they will not survive. ...NOAA and its local, state and federal partners started
                 the Barataria Bay dolphin study in past as part of the Natural Resource Damage Assessment (NRDA), the process for
                 studying the effects of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. NOAA is sharing the preliminary results from the study so that
                 stranding responders and veterinarians can better care for live stranded dolphins... Dolphin Phone  877.942.5343   -

              'Coming Home' was inspired by his return to the place where he was raised and to the classic songs that made him fall in

                    Protecting Wild Dolphins! from Sonar effects testing, Ship hits & Oil spills?  "HelpOur Friends!"
                    Update Dec 2018... In past: as per NOAA Finds Bacterial Infection as Cause of Death for 5 Northern Gulf Dolphins;
                    Investigation Continues ...Pathology experts contracted by NOAA have identified the bacteria Brucella in five
                    bottlenose dolphins that died in the northern Gulf of Mexico. These five are among the 580 dolphins in higher than
                    expected strandings that began in February 2010 and are continuing. NOAA has declared it an “unusual mortality
                    event,” triggering a focused, expert investigation into the cause. NOAA is working with a team of marine mammal
                    health experts, including veterinarians, epidemiologists, biologists & toxicologists, to investigate the cause of death
                    for as many of the 580 dolphins as possible.  ...Brucella are commonly found in populations of marine & terrestrial
                    animals throughout the world, but infection in humans is rare in the U.S., and there are no documented U.S. cases
                    of Brucella in humans originating from marine sources. NOAA advises anyone who sees a stranded dolphin in the
                    Gulf of Mexico region to call 1-877-Whale Help (877.942.5343). The stranded dolphin should not be touched, and
                    pets should be kept away from the dolphin as well.  In addition, cooking seafood kills the Brucella bacterium, and
                    as there have been only 3cases globally linking Brucella infection to consumption of raw seafood, there is minimal
                    risk of exposure to humans through seafood consumption.  ...& Past Dolphin News: "NOAA scientists participate in
                    the Behavioral Response Study of Cetaceans to Navy Sonar, Southern California Scientists from NOAA's Southwest
                    Fisheries Science Center are participating in a Navy sponsored study known as SOCAL-10, Biological and Behavioral
                    Response Studies of Marine Mammals in Southern California. SOCAL-10 is designed to measure the response of
                    cetaceans to Navy mid-frequency sonar and, potentially, other sounds sources.  This project is a collaboration with
                    researchers at NOAA, Cascadia Research, Duke University, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, Scripps Institution
                    of Oceanography... & Navy researchers."  Editor's Note on Gulf Oil Spill as well as the continued 'take/sonar testing'
                    off of FL in Bahamas area (in addition to Southern California tests) & response: We applaud all
                    efforts to protect Marine Mammals! However NOAA states; "Although severely limited in our continued ability to
                    move dolphins out of their natural habitats in response to the oil spill" as well as other orgs believe
                    that most of the dolphins can be relocated to 'safe wild areas'  that are in 'Non-Sonar Testing Take Areas' in the
                    Bahamas & other Caribbean locations - funds are an excuse?  -Also Note: the term'Take' refers to harming & death

2019 Season El Niño & La Niña factor? El Niño is a disruption of the ocean-atmosphere system in the tropical Pacific that has consequences for weather around the globe. Among its effects are increased rainfall across the southern tier of the United States, destructive flooding in Peru, drought in the western Pacific and devastating brush fires in Australia. In Florida, El Niño brings relief from drought conditions by dropping extra rain in the winter as well as creating upper level winds in the summer that tend to cut down on the number of tropical storms.  Lack of El Niño will be a factor for 2019 season. Renowned hurricane forecaster Dr. C. King predicts that El Niño will be dormant this year with major hurricane being 8 - Dr. King said "Come September I will drink a lot of Hulacanes ä "  (note: a Hulacane is a fresh Rum concoction that was invented by Dr. Kotas for Ernest in 1937 - Hulacane a TradeMark porperty of Key West Institute since 1939)"
Update: 2019?: La Niña weather pattern is giving way to El Niño? Hurricane Season is: June 1 through November 30.
