Dear Coral-Listers,

Complimenting Al Strongs report, Fiji is now experiencing a major coral
bleaching event. Bleaching is occurring in excess of 65% in some areas.  The
phenomenon is recent having started within the last 3 weeks. Fiji has
escaped any serious bleaching over the last decade. This is the end of the
hot season so the ensuing cooler temperatures may moderate any serious effects.
