	We have reports of slime-blotch disease, characterized by 
large, external lesions, in coral reef fishes from 4 widely spaced 
West Indian localities.  Have you seen this disease or heard reports 
of its occurrence?  We are concerned that it is becoming widespread 
and may cause a mass mortality.

	Thank you.
