Hi- I'm wondering if anyone has done any research on the effects of
Clorox (bleach) on coral reefs. I have just returned from Panama where I
was doing field research for my master's thesis, and the locals there
squirt Clorox into nooks and crannies in the reef to catch octopus.
This is a relatively new method of catching a previously un-used species,
but I can imagine it must be disastrous- and I'd like to know more about
it. Thanks, jenna bossung (please reply to jab18 at acpub.duke.edu)
