I am reviewing information related to crown-of-thorns starfish control 
programs and am interested in strategies, successes, failures, costs, etc.

While I can search the mainstream literature, a lot of what gets written 
down about such programs is in very grey literature that is not always well 

I would be interested to hear from people involved in programs over the 
last 10-12 years (post-Birkeland and Lucas) and especially about any 

Please address replies to me (rather than clogging everyone's mailboxes) 
and I will post a summary on coral-list shortly.
