Reefer Colleagues, 
I have just learned from Dr. Ray Hayes that bleaching from high SST has  
moved into the western Caribbean [Cayman Islands]...we see a great deal  
of +30C surface water from the Gulf south to Columbia...hurricanes  
appears to have kept eastern Caribbean mixed and cooler. 

Has anyone noted an increased incidence of bleaching other than what has  
been reported at Belize [and earlier this month in the Flower Gardens]?
