Can Cancer Spread from One Creature to Another . . . ….

Scientists just doubled the number of known contagious cancers

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/speaking-of-science/wp/2016/06/22/scientists-just-doubled-the-number-of-known-contagious-cancers/

By Sarah Kaplan June 22

New Columbia University research on tumors in clams suggests that contagious cancers might be more common than previously thought, and may even be communicable across species. (Columbia University)

All along the western Canadian coast, mussels are dying. Their blobby bodies are swollen by tumors. The blood-like fluid that fills their interiors is clogged with malignant cells. They're all sick with the same thing: cancer. And it seems to be spreading.

For all its harrowing, terrifying damage, the saving grace of cancer has always been that it dies with its host. Its destructive power comes from turning victims' own cells against them and making them run amok.

But when molecular biologist Stephen Goff biopsied these mussels, he found something strange. The tumor cells didn't have the same DNA as their host. Instead, every mussel was being killed by the same line of cancerous cells, which were jumping from one individual to the next like a virus. The mussels, as well as two other species of bivalve examined by Goff and his colleagues, are dying from contagious cancer.

Goff's study, which was published Wednesday in the journal Nature, doubles the number of species known to suffer from transmissible cancers. And in one case, clams were being killed by cancer cells that come from an entirely different species.

The results, Goff said, suggest that this communicable form of the disease isn't as rare as scientists once thought.

"I guess that many, many of the cancers that are known will turn out to be of this type," said Goff, who is based at Columbia University Medical Center. "How many other marine species might turn out to suffer from this, we don't really know."

[What cancer in clams might tell us about cancer in humans]

The first contagious cancer was discovered in the 1990s, when researchers studying Tasmanian devils noticed that the fierce marsupials were perishing from ugly facial tumors. Eventually, they identified two cancer cell lines that were causing the disease. Meanwhile, scientists working with dogs found that canines on every continent have been suffering from a sexually transmitted tumor for hundreds of years.

Goff and his colleagues found a third example of this phenomenon last year in soft shell clams living along the Atlantic coast. A colleague working at the Marine Biological Laboratory at Woods Hole, Mass., asked him to come take a look at her dying clams, which she thought were suffering from a virus. Instead, they were being killed by a form of bivalve leukemia.

"It was really wild," Goff told The Washington Post at the time. "It was not what we were expecting."

Cockles (Cerastoderma edule) collected in Galicia, Spain. They are one of three new species that suffer from contagious cancer. (David Iglesias via Nature)

But the discovery got him wondering whether transmissible cancers might be more common than anyone realized. So he set about collecting specimens from sick bivalve colonies on opposite sides of the world: mussels from near Vancouver and cockles and golden carpet shell clams on the coast of Spain. All three species were dying from cancer, he found. And all three of the cancers were genetically different from their hosts (the cockles suffered from two distinct strains).

"Now we're four for four" in terms of bivalve species with communicable cancer, he said.

Elizabeth Murchison, who leads a transmissible cancer research group at the University of Cambridge, wrote in an accompanying analysis for Nature: "These findings seem to paint a picture of shellfish beds around the world that are awash with microscopic cancer cells metastasizing both within and between species."

Goff and his colleagues suggest that cancerous cells from sick bivalves are expelled when the creatures defecate or die. The cancers can survive in the water for at least a few hours until they find a new host — and since bivalves are filter feeders, they're susceptible to accidentally consuming these malignant cells. Mussels, cockles and clams also have fairly undeveloped immune systems and few resources to fight off the disease.

[Why it's too early to get excited about this 'unprecedented' new cancer treatment]

The case of the golden carpet shell clams was particularly astonishing.

"The tumor that was spreading in this clam when we genotyped it was really, really different from the host that it was spreading in," Goff said. "It wasn't even of the same species."

Instead, the cancer cells had the genome of the pullet shell clam. Those creatures live right next to the golden carpet shells, but don't seem to be suffering at all. The most likely explanation is that the cancer arose in the pullet shells, but they developed a resistance to the disease, which then jumped to a second species.

The finding has Goff thinking about cancer in an entirely different way.

"Now you have to imagine these contagious cells floating around in the ocean, when when they managed to be picked up by a susceptible host they can establish a new infection," Goff said.

He interrupted himself, reflecting on what he just said: "See, already we're using words that really aren't used to describe cancer, like 'infection.' "

Transmission of cancer within and between clam species could provide an opportunity to model how cancer metastasizes in humans, he said. It could also help us interpret the rare cases where cancer has been communicable in humans: in people who have contracted the disease from transplanted organs, for example, or the man who was killed by cancer cells from a tapeworm that had taken up residence in his gut.

But there's a great deal we need to learn about the cancers first, Goff noted. It's not clear how old these cancers are — they could have evolved for hundreds of years, like the tumor infecting dogs, or may be a more recent development. We still don't really know how the cancerous cells are spreading, how they latch onto their hosts, or whether clams are capable of mobilizing an immune response. And given how common communicable cancers seem to be in bivalves, Goff believes it's definitely worth investigating their presence in other marine species.

On the other hand, humans needn't worry about contracting the diseases. We have a much more sophisticated immune system than clams, Goff noted, and it's unlikely that cancer cells would survive in air as well as they do in sea water. For now, at least, the chilling notion of contagious cancer in humans is just a distant possibility.

National Geographic, Jun 23, 2016: It sounds like the plot of a summer horror flick: Malignant cells floating in the sea, ferrying infectious cancer everywhere they go. The story is all too true, say scientists who’ve made a discovery they call “beyond surprising.”… “The evidence indicates that the tumor cells themselves are contagious – that they can spread from one clam to another in the ocean,” says biochemist and immunologist Stephen Goff of Columbia University, co-author, along with Michael Metzger of Columbia, of a paper reporting the results in the journal Cell. These mussels are one of four species of mollusks affected. The mussels at Copper Beach in West Vancouver, Canada, are infected with the disease. This week the team reported new findings in the journal Nature. The transmissible cancer has been discovered in… mussels (Mytilus trossulus) in West Vancouver… Mytilus trossulus is the main native intertidal mussel in the northern Pacific. In North America, it’s found from California to Alaska… The cancer, it’s believed, originated in one unfortunate mollusk. It’s astounding, Goff says, that a leukemia that has killed countless clams traces to one incidence of the disease… What will happen in other mollusk species?  Ominously, says Goff, “It’s too soon to know.”. . .

CBC News, Jun 22, 2016: Contagious cancers are a scary idea to begin with, but scientists have made some startling new discoveries about them – they are likely more common in nature than originally thought, and some can even spread between species… Mussels living off the coast of British Columbia [are] prone to the contagious cancer… scientists reported Wednesday in Nature… Canadian scientists collected mussels in West Vancouver, above, and Esquimalt, B.C. They then took them back to the lab and screened them for cancer… Sherry worked with Reinisch and scientists at the University of British Columbia to collect mussels in West Vancouver and Esquimalt, B.C. Then they took them back to the lab and screened them for cancer… Samples that tested positive for leukemia were sent to Goff and his postdoctoral researcher Michael Metzger, lead author of the new paper, for genetic analysis. That analysis showed that not all the mussels with leukemia had a contagious cancer – in some cases, the cancer had developed from an individual’s own cells, as is typically the case. But contagious cancers were found in all three species, and were typically clones from a single individual… Stephen Goff, a professor of microbiology at Columbia University who also co-authored the new paper, is interested in finding out what mutations allowed the transmissible cancer to spread to other individuals. . . ...

#8 – EPA tests in the months after the 03/11/2011 Japan Tsunami/Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Incident showed high levels of Iodine-131 (8 day Half-Life). The EPA was confident levels would be acceptable before reaching the West Coast. Curiously the EPA neglected to mention the levels of Cesium-137 & Strontium-90 which have a (30 Year Half-Life). EPA suspended testing after only a couple months ... the last official update was dated (May 3, 2011) –Joint FDA, NOAA and EPA Fact Sheet on Seafood Safety Statement - Return to Routine Operations - ”...

#9 – Since then the EPA’s new [PAG] Protective Action Guidelines have raised the safe acceptable levels of Isotopes. The draft EPA PAG lists the new drinking water limit of Iodine-131 at 81,000 picocuries/liter(pCi/l) 27,000 times the previous EPA limit of 3 (pCi/l)... New Canadian drinking water standards have raised the safe level of Tritium [1400x] from 5 to 7,000 (Bq/L) & 7 million (Bq/m3) ... that’s 7,000 Becquerels (radioactive decays/second)of Tritium in your liter of  soda &7 million/sec in your 1000 liter hot tub. A new German study indicates a massive spike in Sr-90 at about the 1000 - 1500 day mark.[http://www.enviroreporter.com/2013/07/epa-nukes-radiation-rules/all/1][http://enenews.com/study-finds-giant-strontium-90-release-into-body-of-water-begins-around-1000-days-after-meltdown-dec-5-2013-is-a-thousand-days-after-311]
 
#10 – Scientific Computer Models predicted the Radioactive release would reach the West Coast between the 3rd and 4th year.  Santa Cruz surfers are now finding the tsunami debris as of late April 2015.

#11 – Scientists are finding the radioactive material is not diluting in 2 yrs per scientific expectations as predicted by computer models using radioactive cesium tracers  ... but concentrating as it floats on the surface due to viscosity and heat differentials.
 
#12 – Months after the computer models and the EPA testing ... TEPCO then amended their original assessment of a limited contained Hydrogen explosion to an ongoing uncontrolled Nuclear Reaction (Nuclear Meltdown) occurring in Reactors 1-3 ...  Later data of Corium in a test well 75-80 ft below ground level would indicate a breach in the reactor containment vessels ...   Muon detectors have revealed pools of Corium beneath the reactors. (Experts:Prepare for radiation doses over 200 Sieverts)... [Fukushima Update - Note:  1 µSv (microSievert) = 1 millionth of a Sievert]   [200 million  µSv/hr = 200 Sv/hr] ... Off the Radiological Charts ...!!!... See Rad Charts Section of [http://FukushimaDaiichiUpdate.yolasite.com]
 
#13 – 2 ½  years into the event ... Tepco admitted to some 400 - 1000 tons of water flowing into, under and around Reactors 1 - 4. 400 tons/day is being pumped out of  the basements ... and stored in tanks to be treated ... however at present Tepco has run out of room for more tanks ... and the IAEA has given the okay to dump directly into the Pacific ... Alternate estimates based on Tepco’s 30,000 gal/min put the 400 tons/day estimate closer to  150,000 tons/day/unit possibly over [1,000x] times more...
 
#14– Nano size particles of Plutonium have been found floating on the surface of the ocean around the plant. Not to worry though ... because EPA’s new [PAG] Protective Action Guidelines have increased the safe level by [3,447x] times. Other Isotopes thought to exist only  theoretically in a plasma state are being found in a solid ‘particle-like’ congealed state...Ref: [Yoichi Shimatsu – Fukushima Update] [www.renseradio.com]
 
#15 – Tepco officials are admitting the technology does not exist to decommission the (3) meltdown/melt-thru nuclear reactors ... maybe in 200 years the technology will be discovered Tepco’s scientists speculate. “Tokyo has a very great aquarium at Rinkai, but Rinkai Park is at the mouth of the Edogawa river which is where they dredge up the river sludge to burn to remove the radiation from the waterway ... but that plant is owned by Tepco ... Tepco secretly owns a lot of the sludge plants ... Tepco is a huge monster ... 300 companies ... thousands of assets ... they’re not broke by any means ... they have tons of money making operations. They dredge the river because the radiation is so high they’re getting about 4000 Becquerels/Kg of sludge ... it’s pretty high. Edogawa river feeds right into Tokyo Bay where all the Olympic Islands are ... and the huge aquarium is right there at Rinkai Park ... that beautiful park ...unfortunately is highly radioactive now ... and there they have one of the biggest aquariums in the world. They had a school of tuna swimming around ... 65 huge Blue-fin tuna, hundreds of other tuna species, albacore and so on. A week ago Japan Times AFP broke the story ... there’s only one tuna left  ... all the rest died mysteriously. I’m afraid this 200 year business ....what’s coming over is not just Cesium and Strontium ... those were the light weight things ... they will kill you slowly ... what’s coming over is Tritium ... that’s the knock out punch. Obviously Tritium killed these Tuna ... and Plutonium. They’re finding out that nano sized particles of Plutonium float on water ... it’s on the surface of the Pacific ... it won’t sink. When this stuff hits it’s over ... with the Tritium ... I just don’t see any survival rate along the Pacific coast if that hits. It may well be over in 20 years ... not 200 years ... I mean the stuff will keep coming ... but it will be coming to a wasteland where every form of life and every person who stays there will be dead. It’s the death of a Nation ... Nuclear power ... Nuclear energy has killed the country ... and the more we find out ... In Franfurt I gave the first presentation on discovering three nuclear weapons sites at Fukushima ... these were vast underground chambers ... and the trail from these facilities led to the ocean. So basically they piled that high level Plutonium-241 ... highest level Plutonium for weapons you can have ... hundreds of tons of war-grade Plutonium ... piled it on barges and sank the barges in the Pacific. So that’s why I’m saying ... this ain’t just a bunch of Uranium with a little bit of Plutonium ... we’re talking about probably as much as the Russian stockpile of Plutonium has been dumped in the ocean, it’s breaking open, and there’s no real attempt to contain it in any way. We’re in for it ... we’re really in for it ..! This is why all the engineers at Fukushima are starting to breakdown, they’re starting to talk, this stuff is serious.Yoichi Shimatsu [www.4thmedia.org]  Jeff Rense: This is the most shocking revelation in print that I’ve seen yet ... ‘No technology exists on the planet’ ... ‘We have no idea’ ... ‘This is insurmountable’ ... ‘200 years at least’ ... We’ve haven’t seen this before. They waited 4 years to tell us what Yoichi was telling us 4 years ago on this program.  Yoichi: Yeah ... we were telling you the first week ... I think ... The worst is yet to come. Everyone thinks the worst was right after Fukushima. No, Folks, the worst is still coming across ... still bubbling up in the Pacific...  Rense: You know ... you said something earlier ... and you’re right ... I was thinking back ... what we talked about in the first week or two after the event, when you came on. Every bit of it has proven to be exactly correct, every bit, you haven’t been wrong on anything. Yoichi: Yeah ... we were exact about what we predicted ... but we were wrong in that it has been far worse than we predicted ... Ok ... the volume of the meltdown ... which they’re hunting for now with this Muon dectector ... they can’t find anything in the upper regions of these reactors ... It used to be there would be broken rods ... they can’t find broken rods left ..! Now the engineers of the plant are saying all the corium in the (3) reactors has melted down ... and we don’t know ... we assume it’s at the bottom of the reactor ... but we’re not sure. This kind of talk coming out ... this is far worse than we were talking about back then ... but we were right ... we were right the meltdowns were very serious ... and they were lying ... they did not admit to the meltdowns for months ... for months ... and it was happening within (2) hours of the earthquake ... (2) hours of the tsunami.Rense:Okay, there it is ... No, it’s not on the MSN ... you’re not gonna see it on CNN ... but it’s true ... we tell you the truth here. Ref: 3/30/15 - Jeff Rense and Researcher Yoichi Shimatsu - Fukushima Update [www.rense.com]

[Footnote Reference Materials …

EPA’s own numbers show fatal cancers at levels hundreds to thousands of times higher than with CERCLA at Superfund cleanup sites. [#3 –  ...the EPA’s new [PAG] Protective Action Guidelines have raised the safe acceptable levels of Isotopes.] The draft EPA PAG lists the new drinking water limit of Iodine-131 at 81,000 picocuries/liter(pCi/l) 27,000 times the previous EPA limit of 3 pCi/l

Cesium-137, Strontium-90 and Plutonium-239 would all be considered safe at levels thousands of times what the EPA currently allows. Cesium-137, Strontium-90 and Plutonium-239, would be allowed at levels so high that in one EPA radiation scenario, exposure would lead to a 100 percent chance of getting a fatal cancer, eight times over. Cesium-137 and Strontium-90, two virulent radionuclides that cause blood and bone cancers including leukemia, reaches new limits literally. Cs-137 is now considered safe at [270x] times its previous cutoff level. Sr-90 comes in at [676x] times what is the maximum level considered safe to drink. This results in different new rad limits on isotopes. In EPA PAG Alternative II for Strontium-90 in drinking water, the 246 Becquerels per liter (Bq/l) new limit is [7,022x] times EPA’s PRG. At 50 Bq/l Plutonium-239 is now over [3,447x] times its own PRG as determined by the agency that made both.

  Previously, the target had been 1 mSv/y. All of this was rejected in favor of 20 mSv/y because the “prefectural government could not function with population drain under the 5-millisievert scenario,”   (www.enviroreporter.com/2013/07/epa-nukes-radiation-rules/)

==============================================

[81,000 picocuries/liter(pCi/l) = 2,997 becquerels/liter]   1 picocurie = 0.037 becquerels    1 becquerel = 27.027 picocuries

[81,000 (pCi/l) = 2,997 becquerels/liter][Becquerel = 1 radioactive decay/second(count/sec)]

==============================================

… says Hirsch in his comments on the PAG. “These are extraordinary doses. 20 mSv/y is the equivalent of approximately one thousand chest X-rays annually, or three chest X-rays every day of your life, from the moment of birth to the moment of death.

“This would, in effect, increase a longstanding 1 in 10,000 person cancer rate to a rate of 1 in 23 persons exposed over a 30-year period.”... For example, the new EPA guide refers to International Atomic Energy Agency guidelines that suggest intervention is not necessary until drinking water is contaminated with radioactive iodine 131 at a concentration of 81,000 picocuries per liter. This is 27,000 times less stringent than the EPA rule of 3 picocuries per liter.

New Canadian Safe Drinking Water Standards            [ Becquerel = 1 radioactive decay/second (count/sec) ]

(http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/ewh-semt/water-eau/drink-potab/guide/index-eng.php)

Tritium                                   7,000,000 (Bq/m3) Becquerels/m3  7,000 (Bq/L) Becquerels/Liter = [1400x] previous 5 (Bq/L)

Cesium-137 (137Cs)                            10,000 (Bq/m3) Becquerels/m3       

Iodine-131 (131I)                                6,000 (Bq/m3) Becquerels/m3          [30 billionth of a gram lethal]  [31x] more (129I) [51 million half-life]

Strontium-90 (90Sr)                            5,000 (Bq/m3) Becquerels/m3          [100x] more Sr-90 wherever there is Cs-137

Far more concerning than mere numerical contradictions, however, is the manner in which PEER (Public Employees For Environmental Responsibility) paints the real effects of such a policy if it is ever put into practice. The organization states that, “This would, in effect, increase a longstanding 1 in 10,000 person cancer rate to a rate of 1 in 23 persons exposed over a 30-year period ... Indeed, in March, 2011, I wrote an article entitled, “EPA To Help Mainstream Media Obscure The Truth About Radiation Exposure to Americans,” in which I reported on the EPA’s attempt to make important changes to its PAGs (Protective Action Guides) that would have allowed for, according to PEER, “nearly 1000-fold increase for exposure to strontium-90, a 3000 to 100,000-fold hike for exposure to iodine-131; and an almost 25,000 rise for exposure to radioactive nickel-63” in drinking water.”...(http://www.activistpost.com/2013/04/obama-approves-epas-higher-radiation.html)

=====================================================   [800 Trillion Bq of Fukushima Cesium-137]

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Published: June 7th, 2015 at 9:48 pm ET By ENENews

6/07/15 - Gov’t Expert: West Coast will soon be hit by 800 Trillion Bq of Fukushima Cesium-137 — Nearly equal to amount of fallout deposited on Japan — Levels in Pacific “higher than expected” — “Main body of surface plume has reached off coast of US” — Never slowed down while crossing ocean, contrary to prediction... Researcher Yoichi Shimatsu suggested this estimate to be conservative by a factor of [100 - 1000x] times...

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

[http://enenews.com/govt-expert-west-coast-will-be-hit-800-trillion-bq-fukushima-cesium-137-equal-amount-fallout-deposited-japan-levels-pacific-higher-expected-main-body-surface-plume-reached-coast-never-slow]

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Shanghai Daily, Apr 30, 2015 (emphasis added): About 800 tera becquerel of Cesium- 137 is going to reach West Coast of North America by 2016, equivalent to 5 percent of the total Cs-137 amount discharged to the pacific ocean after the Fukushima nuclear disaster, [Michio Aoyama, a professor at Fukushima University] was quoted by Kyodo recently… However, Cs-137 levels detected at U.S. beaches were 1 to 2 bq per cubic meter, much lower than the safety limit… “Even if all the 800 tera bq Cs-137 have arrived, the radiation levels will stay at relatively low level that aren’t expected to harm human health,” said Aoyama.

 1-2 Bq/m3 of Cs-137? The West Coast samples with Fukushima radioactive material have contained levels several times that amount. Off the coast of California, levels were 8.6 Bq/m3 (Cs-137 @ 6.9; Cs-134 @ 1.7). Levels on Vancouver Island were 7.2 Bq/m3 (Cs-137 @ 5.8; Cs-134 @ 1.4).

 Aoyama’s estimate of 800 terabecquerels of Cs-137 reaching the West Coast is about the same as the total amount of Cs-137 estimated to have been deposited on Japan (1.0 petabecquerels or 1,000 terabecquerels, Source: TEPCO).

 Michio Aoyama (Fukushima University) et al. (pdf), European Geosciences Union General Assembly in Vienna, Austria, Apr 2015: [W]e and our collaborators continue to collect seawater samples in 2013 and 2014 in the North Pacific Ocean… The 137Cs activity through the end of September 2014 remain higher than expected, ca. 1000 Bq/m3, implying continued releases from the reactors… In the North Pacific Ocean main body of radiocaesium surface plume of which activity exceed 10 Bq/m3 had been travelling along 40 ºN, and reached International Date Line on March 2012… the radiocaesium plume was confined along 40 ºN when the plume reached International Date Line. A zonal speed of the radiocaesium plume was estimated to be about 8 cm s-1… After that, main body of radiocaesium surface plume continued to travel eastward and reached off west coast of US continent in August 2014 which implies the zonal speed of the radiocaesium plume was maintained at similar speed.

 During a TV interview last year, Aoyama announced a somewhat different scenario — Al Jazeera Transcript: “Aoyama calculates that the radiation will slow, sink, and then harmlessly decay over decades, as Pacific currents turn most of it toward Southeast Asia and the Indian Ocean. Prof. Aoyama: ‘So I can say that the people in the Western Coast are safe.’”

KSBW, May 29, 2015 (emphasis added): Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary: Mass die-off could happen – “We are beginning with continuing coverage of that algae bloom in the Monterey Bay. Scientists say they’re seeing the highest levels of red tide in more than a decade, and they’re worried it will have grave impacts on marine life… [It] spreads all up and down the West Coast. Researchers in Santa Cruz have already recorded a mass die-off of anchovies and they expected more species could follow.”

 KSBW, May 29, 2015: Scientists with the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary are predicting a mass die-off on the Central Coast… Up and down the West Coast, a large algal bloom of Pseudo-nitzschia is growing rapidly.

 Chris Scholin, Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI), May 28, 2015: Very Toxic Algal Bloom in Monterey Bay — I wanted to let you know we have been following a very big bloom of Pseudo-nitzschia over the past couple of weeks here in the bay, and the amount of associated domoic acid is really extraordinary… Yesterday I noticed anchovies washing up on the beach in front of MBARI as far as I could see. There’s also lines of fish scales (anchovy?) marking the high tide line… One of the staff went snorkeling off the beach here, and saw the seafloor littered with anchovies… keep an eye out for seizuring sealions, sick birds, maybe sick otters… We think this is a very large event… Don’t eat shellfish or forage fish from MB — very nasty right now!!!

 KSBW, May 29, 2015: “New tonight… researchers say a large algae bloom has taken over the Monterey Bay“… Jim Birch, MBARI: “We’re seeing these really high domoic acid levels in both locations, which is very, very unusual“… “Scientists with MBARI say the toxins from the algae bloom are going to have a chain reaction on marine animals, and they’ve already seen more dead seabirds on Central Coast beaches… It has started to really grow in the last few days.

 KSBW, May 29, 2015: Raphael Kudela, a researcher at [UCSC] said the bloom… is being found from Washington to Santa Barbara… reports of dead seabirds are already coming in.

 Monterey Herald, May 28, 2015: A mysterious neurotoxin… returned with a vengeance… “This is an unusual one,” said Raphael Kudela… “We haven’t seen a bloom this big in 15 years.”… why the toxin periodically blooms in Monterey Bay is still a marine mystery… scientists are getting closer to pinning down the reason for the blooms, with human impacts among the range of possibilities… Domoic acid is also suspected in a recent spate of bird deaths.

 UC Santa Cruz, June 2, 2015: The toxin was first detected in early May, and by the end of the month researchers had detected some of the highest concentrations of domoic acid ever observed in Monterey Bay. “It’s a pretty massive bloom. The domoic acid levels are extremely high right now… the event is occurring as far north as Washington state. So it appears this will be one of the most toxic and spatially largest events we’ve had in at least a decade,” said Raphael Kudela, [UCSC] professor of ocean sciences.

 MBARI, Jun 1, 2015: Researchers measured some of the highest concentrations of harmful algae and their toxin ever observed in Monterey Bay… During a normal [bloom] 1,000 nanograms per liter would be considered high… [It's] reached 10 to 30 times this level. On May 27, 2015, very high levels… were found in dead anchovies… The researchers do not know if the anchovies died because of domoic acid poisoning.

Yo! Venice, Jun 7, 2015 (emphasis added): The Sad Reality Of Starving, Dying Sea Lions On Venice… [A breeze] catches the scent of dead, rotting sea lion. The pungent stench lingers… It’s hard to ignore… The dead pups are small enough to be tied up tight in black plastic garbage bags. The larger adult sea lions lay out in the open.

Nick Fash, Heal the Bay: “It’s quite frightening… they wash up on our beaches weak and sickened and many cases dying, which is what you see in the bags.”

National Geographic, Jun 5, 2015: Number of Starving Sea Lions in California ‘Unprecedented’… raising questions about what the future holds after three years of mass strandings — More than 3,000 starving sea lion pups have washed up… And those are the lucky pups. The situation on California’s Channel Islands, where more than 90 percent of the U.S. sea lion population congregates to breed and nurse young, is even worse… “The few pups that have enough strength to leave the rookeries and make it to the mainland get recorded as strandings,” says NOAA’s Mark Lowry… “There’s a lot of death out there.”… When Lowry visited two of the main U.S. sea lion nurseries in April, he found a grim scene. In addition to beaches full of starving or dead pups, there were dead adult female sea lions and many aborted fetuses. “Adult females are taking a hit now,” he says. “What I’m predicting is that pup production—when they start being born in June—is going to be really low.”… This year, the most likely culprit is that warm water blob… But that blob wasn’t there during the earlier strandings, when oceanographic conditions looked much more normal. It’s also uncertain whether prey populations have died out… Sea lions are considered sentinel species, which means they’re used as indicators of ocean health—and the indications aren’t looking good.

2014-2015 Pacific Anomalies Science and Technology Workshop, May 6, 2015:

Conference Attendee (at 3:42:30): “I’m an ecotoxicologist… We know that pollution, chemical pollution of the oceans, is increasing… [In your research into the sea lion die-off] you should include data like chemical analysis and chemical pollution… We need to include this… to see if it has an influence to the decreasing of the populations.”

 No response from any of the dozen Q&A panelists

 6 minutes later — Sam McClatchie, NOAA Supervisory Oceanographer: “I have a comment to follow up on the idea that pollution may be important to the condition of the sea lions… In the modeling I did, the purpose was to… have a hypothesis as to what might be going on… We could have thrown in many other variables–and there’s always a temptation to do that… which probably should be discouraged. I’m not at all sure whether pollution had an effect — it might well have — and one could certainly test that. I just wanted to state that we deliberately didn’t test all the possible variables.”

 From McClatchie’s sea lion presentation: “I’m going to talk about forage rather than sea lions, I’m not an expert in sea lions… They’re very unwell, rescue centers are overflowing… They’re very endearing, but they grow up to be rather a problem, they’re big animals… People get upset when they see them starving… [Centers] try to recover them [and] put them back out in the ocean. Unfortunately, the ocean hasn’t really changed, so we don’t know whether all these rescues are helping anything more than how we feel.”

5/21/15 - Nome Nugget (pdf), Nov 27, 2014- Mysterious deadly black fungus being found on fish in Pacific Northwest — Gov’t: There was some concern Fukushima radiation could be involved — Biologists investigating how this landbased mold is now appearing in ocean — Many reports of unusual rotting sores, growths, bumps, cancer ... The Nome office of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game received several reports of tomcod with black lesions this year… ADF&G fishery biologists speculate that the lesions are a fungus… Specifically, black mold, commonly found in houses… What the pathology lab finds interesting is that this fungus is landbased and yet it is appearing on fish… Fish pathologists would like to receive as many samples as possible so that they may adequately research what exactly is infecting these fish, as well as its affect on humans. Until further notice, ADF&G recommends that fish with lesions should not be eaten due to possible human health concerns (CAPTION: DON’T EAT THIS— ADF&G biologists are investigating black lesions found on tomcods in the region. Until it is known what the lesions exactly are, the department recommends not to consume fish showing these symptoms)(http://enenews.com/mysterious-black-mold-being-found-fish-pacific-northwest-govt-concern-fukushima-radiation-could-be-involved-biologists-investigating-landbased-fungus-appearing-fish-many-reports-unusual-rotti)...

Mar 17, 2015: Brendan Scanlon, fishery biologist for North Slope Dept. of Fish & Game (pdf): Just a quick word on this fungus that people are seeing more and more of. It’s probably what’s called saprolegnia. It’s a water mold… It’s in the water at all times… healthy fish will swim around and never get it, but if the fish is stressed nutritionally or its immune system has been compromised… that gives a pathway for the mold to attack… It will eventually kill the fish… We saw something similar last summer. We had a very big die-off on the Kobuk River… we had thousands of dead chum salmon… and they had had presence of the same mold on them.

 Feb 20, 2014:North Slope Federal Subsistence Regional Advisory Council (pdf), Dr. Jayde Ferguson, Alaska Dept of Fish & Game: The first confirmed report was from fish caught on Oct. 12, 2013… There was some concern that radiation from the Japanese disaster could be involved, so the North Slope biologist measured ionizing radiation in fish with a geiger-mueller counter and found that there was no elevated levels there… There was no food in the GI track and there was no fat or very little fat internally… The external lesions… corresponded to saprolegnia… it can act as a pathogen particularly in stressed fish because their immune system is depressed… I wanted to touch on a totally unrelated fungal case that is of interest to our lab because there’s not a lot known about it and it’s distinctly different from the saprolegnia in that it’s very black and large… there’s not a lot out in the literature on this black fungus… There’s just not a lot known about transmission or anything else, so we’re wanting to get a better idea of what’s going on…

Dr. Todd Sformo, Wildlife Biologist: I think the main concern was that if this mold is really present in the environment… it’s been reported a lot… why is the mold coming up being on fish at this point? So we have very few records in the north slope and Jayde mentioned the one… in the 1980s, so that was just one fish with that mold that we had recorded up until this point… why is it occurring now if it’s so prevalent in the environment?… We measured a number of the fish that were caught that had the mold and that did not have the mold and the size of the fish didn’t seem to matter at all…Ferguson: If we’re seeing it in juveniles that really does support some environmental issue… How many fish are affected?… It might not have an impact at the population level, but if there’s a large amount of fish that are affected, then that’s a different thing...

Asahi Shimbun, Apr 11, 2015 (emphasis added): [A] robot sent to probe a highly radioactive containment vessel of the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant got stuck hours after it was deployed, dealing a major blow to decommissioning work… TEPCO has yet to determine why the device became immovable… the operators tugged on the robot’s cable and sent instructions for it to change shape, but it still would not move… The robot is essential to carrying out preliminary studies…

 Reuters, Apr 14, 2015: Eerie footage from inside destroyed Fukushima reactor… [the robot has] lost control and become unconnected… Monday (April 13), Tepco decided to cut the wire to the robot and leave it in inside… Tepco has one more of the same type of robot…

 AP, Apr 13, 2015: A 2 ½ minute edited compilation… showed steam wafting from inside the dark container [and] debris that looked like small rocks and metal parts. The images contained numerous white dots believed to be caused by gamma rays. [TEPCO said] the levels were significantly lower than anticipated… Without more data, it will be difficult to figure out exactly how to safely locate and remove the radioactive debris. Nuclear officials are expected to revise the plant’s decades-long decommissioning roadmap in the coming weeks, with more leeway and options in case earlier plans prove unfeasible.

 NHK transcript, Apr 13, 2015: “At one point the reading shoots above 20 sieverts [actually 24.9 sieverts/hr].”

 Kyodo News, Apr 7, 2015: In October 2012, radiation levels inside the containment vessel… measured up to 11 sieverts per hour.

 NHK, Apr 12, 2015: TEPCO abandons robot in reactor… it stalled after moving about 10 meters… the robot has remained immobile and is not showing any sign of improvement. That’s forced the company to give up recovering the device.

 NHK, Apr 13, 2015: The 2-minute 40-second-long clip shows mainly steam. It is thought that water at the bottom of the containment vessel is being evaporated by the heat of the melted nuclear fuel… [TEPCO] cut the remote control cable for the robot after giving up on its recovery on Sunday, and postponed a second survey with another robot.

=================================  06/30/2015 - Mutant fish with “grotesque tumor bubbling out of face” ... Nearly 70% of males have female egg cells in testicles

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

[http://enenews.com/mutant-fish-found-three-mile-island-nuclear-plant-grotesque-tumor-bubbling-face-officials-unrecognizable-pathogen-affecting-population-fisherman-waiting]

----------------------------------------------------------------------------          

At first she was surprised. Then she was disturbed. Now she’s a little alarmed. Each time a different batch of male fish with eggs in their testes shows up in the Chesapeake Bay watershed, Vicki Blazer’s eyebrows arch a bit higher.

 In the latest study, smallmouth bass and white sucker fish captured at 16 sites in the Delaware, Ohio and Susquehanna rivers in Pennsylvania had crossed over into a category called intersex, an organism with two genders.

 “I did not expect to find it quite as widespread,” said Blazer, a U.S. Geological Survey biologist who studies fish. Since 2003, USGS scientists have discovered male smallmouth and largemouth bass with immature eggs in several areas of the Potomac River, including near the Blue Plains Advanced Wastewater Treatment Plant in the District.

 The previous studies detected abnormal levels of compounds from chemicals such as herbicides and veterinary pharmaceuticals from farms, and from sewage system overflows near smallmouth-bass nesting areas in the Potomac.

 Those endocrine-disrupting chemicals throw off functions that regulate hormones and the reproductive system. In the newest findings, at one polluted site in the Susquehanna near Hershey, Pa., 100 percent of male smallmouth bass that were sampled had eggs, Blazer said.

With the mutant bass, she said, “we keep seeing ... a correlation with the percent of agriculture in the watershed where we conduct a study.”

 The fish that were dissected and analyzed by researchers swam downstream from farms and animal feed operations, where rains wash manure filled with various chemicals and hormones into streams and rivers.

 It was a familiar finding. After the first intersex bass were found in the Potomac, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service made a remarkable discovery in follow-up research at Blue Plains: “We found female germ cells in the testes of 82 percent to 100 percent of the male smallmouth bass and in 23 percent of the males from ... largemouth bass,” the agency said.

 It is a problem that extends well beyond the Chesapeake Bay region, which includes the District, Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, West Virginia and Pennsylvania. Intersex bass were found by the USGS in the Columbia, Colorado and Mississippi river basins in 2009. Scientists have yet to identify a single chemical responsible for causing male fish to become part female.

 In urban areas, estrogen products are often flushed down drains, contaminating water. In rural areas, natural animal hormones, much of it estrogen, is excreted in manure, which is spread on fields and washed into water by rain.

 “I think it’s a complex mixture of chemicals,” said Blazer, who authored the study with nine researchers.

 The findings published in Environmental Monitoring and Assessment coincided with a new report from the Environmental Integrity Project that says there is far more nitrogen and phosphorus pollution in the Chesapeake Bay than states and the Environmental Protection Agency have led residents to believe.

 The report, “Murky Waters: More Accountability Needed for Agricultural Pollution in the Chesapeake Bay,” says monitoring of fertilizers and other chemicals used at farms, particularly large animal feed operations on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, is too lax under the bay cleanup plan that is being enforced by the EPA.

 “Farmers should more carefully manage these manure and chemical fertilizers, and reduce them in areas where excessive amounts are being applied,” the report said. “Bay states will need better monitoring data in small sub-watersheds dominated by agriculture to accurately track pollution from farms.”

 But the director of the EPA’s Chesapeake Bay Program said the report’s findings fall short because the report is based on information collected from the bay in 2009 and disregards a major event: the most aggressive bay pollution cleanup plan in history. The EPA’s so-called pollution diet started in December 2010.

 The sites in the Susquehanna and Delaware rivers were studied in 2007, and the Ohio River was visited in summer the following year, Blazer said. The samples waited in a long line of items submitted for research until it was completed this year.

 “It’s the way science works,” Blazer said. “It takes a long time for the chemical analysis. Labs that analyze chemicals are backed up.”

 Chemical pollution in bay tributaries creates problems for smallmouth bass other than intersex fish. Catch rates of adult smallmouth bass in a stretch of the Susquehanna in Pennsylvania fell 80 percent between 2001 and 2005, according to a study by the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission. Smallmouth bass in the region were pocked with sores and lesions, likely from chemicals and parasites, a report by the Chesapeake Bay Foundation said.

 Researchers say they lack the data needed to pinpoint the chemicals that might cause sex changes in fish because farmers are not required to immediately report the strongest chemicals used.

Democrats in the Maryland House and Senate sponsored a pair of bills in a legislative session last year that would have for the first time required growers to record their use of insecticides and herbicides and submit it to the state.

The pesticide-reporting rule stood to create a trove of data that scientists could draw from for studies on human and animal health, supporters said. Researchers said it would help focus research on chemical “hot spots,” the exact moment high concentrations of pesticides hit waters where vulnerable young fish are growing, Blazer said at the time of the legislation in March 2013.

 But the requirement was amended after growers said the rule would be a major financial burden, and the state Department of Agriculture said it would cost $1.5 million for new employees to collect and input data. State lawmakers instead passed legislation to create a fund that would one day pay for mandatory pesticide reporting. Gov. Martin O’Malley (D) signed that legislation in May.

 The fish is “an indicator that something else is really wrong,” Blazer said in support of stronger pesticide reporting. “What are these things doing to the natural environment? If we find these things in wild organisms, there’s a good chance they’re also affecting people.”

NPR, Jan. 30, 2014 (Emphasis Added): [...] Scientists first started noticing sick and dying sea stars last summer at a place called Starfish Point on Washington’s Olympic Peninsula. [...] Reports have since surfaced from Alaska to as far south as San Diego, raising questions of whether this die-off is an indicator of a larger problem. [...] fat, multi-armed stars melted into piles of mush. [...] about a dozen species of sea stars are dying along the West Coast. Sea star wasting has also been reported at sites off the coast of Rhode Island and North Carolina. But researchers say until they’ve identified the cause of the West Coast die-offs, they can’t confirm any connection between these outbreaks. [...] Within a few hours, the sick stars started ripping themselves apart.  [...] Their innards spilled out and they died within 24 hours. As for the healthy looking stars [...]  they didn’t show symptoms anymore rapidly by being in the same tank with sickly stars. [...] Some have asked whether radiation or tsunami debris associated with the Fukushima disaster could be behind this die-off. But scientists now see Fukushima as an unlikely culprit because the die-offs are patchy, popping up in certain places like Seattle and Santa Barbara and not in others, such as coastal Oregon, where wasting has only been reported at one location. [...] there’s no evidence to entirely confirm or entirely rule out [...]

 The Oregonian, Dec. 27, 2013: The wasting starfish found in Oregon were discovered in April [...] Summer surveys along Oregon’s coast didn’t find any dying starfish, but they happened before the biggest outbreaks, [Pete Raimondi, chairman of UC Santa Cruz’s ecology and evolutionary biology department] said. A team of researchers is planning to survey Oregon’s coast again in late January. Raimondi said he doubts Oregon starfish will somehow be isolated from the outbreak.

 Ben Miner, biology professor at Western Washington University, Jan. 30, 2014: “It certainly suggests that those ecosystems are not healthy [...] To have diseases that can affect that many species, that widespread is, I think is just scary.”

 Laura James, scuba diver, Jan. 30, 2014: “There were just bodies everywhere. There were just splats. It looked like somebody had taken a laser gun and just zapped them and they just vaporized. [...] People always ask me, ‘Do you see any big difference between now and when you started? [...] I’ve seen some subtle differences, but this is the change of my lifetime. We’ve had small occasional die-offs here and there — It’s not like this, a mass mortality event. ”

 Ian Hewson, Cornell microbial biologist, Jan. 30, 2014: “It’s like the matrix [...] We have to be very careful that we’re not identifying something that’s associated with the disease but not the cause.”

 KION, Jan. 8, 2014: I asked about the starfish disease and the dead sea life off our coast. [Dan Hirsch, University of California Santa Cruz] says it’s possible fallout could be involved but unless you do the science and find Fukushima radioactive elements, don’t make conclusions.

 CTV, Jan. 4, 2014 — Ed Singer, dive shop owner: “It’s troubling because it makes me wonder, what’s next?”

West Seattle Blog, Nov. 25, 2013: [...] nothing brings it home like seeing what “Diver Laura” James observed in West Seattle waters this weekend. She recorded video off Seacrest on Saturday and uploaded the clip [...] “I knew it was bad, but I hadn’t seen it in a couple weeks, and it was crushing to see bodies [of sea stars] piled on top of bodies and the pilings bare.” [...] >>

 Marine biologist Pete Raimondi interviewed on KRCB, Nov. 21, 2013: There’s something about this outbreak that is very, very different [...] It’s always been associated with warm water in the past — an El Nino event. We’re not in an El Nino event. [...] There’s 2 things that are really bewildering. One, we aren’t in an El Nino event. The second thing is the spatial thing, from Alaska down to Orange County. It’s hard to think of a mechanism that is consistent across that whole area of geography. >> Listen to the broadcast

 NBC Nightly News, Nov. 29, 2013:

Brian Williams, anchor: Environmental officials in California say there’s been another highly troubling report about what’s going on in the Pacific. [...] Something is killing the starfish and they don’t know why. They have been dying in record numbers on the West Coast [...]

 Pete Raimondi, marine biologist: It’s happened so rapidly that some species are just missing. [...]

 Miguel Almaguer, reporter: An epidemic affecting waters from Alaska to Southern California causing millions of starfish to fall apart and melt away. [...] Two species that used to thrive here have now vanished. [...]

 Raimondi: I’ve had probably 100 emails thus far saying, ‘Well, what about Fukushima, because of radiation?’ We haven’t ruled that out yet, but we’re clearly not ruling that in.

 Almaguer: The mysterious disease has now spread to at least 10 species of starfish and is threatening more every day.

Title: West Coast sea stars mysteriously dying off

Date: Oct. 31, 2013

Transcript Excerpts:

Jean Enersen, King 5 News: The Mysterious die off of West Coast sea stars is spreading.

Dennis Bounds, King 5 News: The so-called melting sea stars were first noticed in Vancouver, then in Seattle, and now in California. King 5 environmental specialist Gary Chittim has more on the rapidly spreading disease, and why scientists are so concerned. And a warning, the video of the sea stars might be disturbing. […]

 Heidi Ebel, Seattle Aquarium: There is a huge unknown as to why there is currently a die off happening […]

 Gary Chittim, KING 5 News: They’re in quarantine […] At least 3 of the aquarium’s captive sea stars were melting. […] And the scene out there is worse. Aquarium divers found a much more serious situation in the wild population along the Seattle waterfront. […] The estimates of infected sea stars has grown from 30% to 50%-60% in just a few days. And now biologists in California are finding it too.

 Dr. Lesanna Lahner, Seattle Aquarium: Something is causing sea stars to be diseased along the coast at different locations. […]

 Chittim: Is it a natural disease, is it triggered by environmental factors? […]

 KOMO News, Nov. 1, 2013: “We’ve been hearing reports that jellyfish numbers are higher than normal in the Puget Sound [near Seattle],” [Bob Pacunski, a marine fish biologist with Fish and Wildlife] said. “I got a sense of that this year when I was out doing some personal fishing. It’s one of those boom or bust things.”
