Dear Coral-list,

Barbados' coral reefs have also be experiencing some bleaching.  Preliminary investigations to the north of the island have revealed the following:

Depths: 30 -60 ft
Temp. at depth: 31C- 32C (dive computer)
Species affected: Diploria strigosa, Meandrina meandrites, Siderastrea siderea, Montastrea annularis, and Diploria labryinthiformis

Similar such reports have been made for the southern portion of the west coast.
