[Coral-List] Sharpnose Puffer

Dear colleagues,
   I add to Will's report. Snorkel sites around Turneffe Atoll, Belize are
filled with sharpnose puffers which have increased in the past 4 months
approximately. They can be found dead at many sites, are easy to catch and
have even become annoying, intruding in transect tapes and rebars.
   Just two days ago on a trip to Lighthouse Reef I observed the same thing,
so recruitment must have been widespread. Any other possibilities? Does
anyone know it's main predators?
