Not to beat a dead horse here, but I just wanted to add another  
location where this supposed recruitment boom was observed.

Similar to other observations from the MBRS (e.g., Belize [Melanie  
McField], Roatan [Will Welbourne]), shaprnosed puffers have achieved  
ridiculous numbers in Utila.  I just returned from Utila on January 3,  
and nearly every dive site across a range of reef habitats was nearly  
overrun with these small fish.
