I don't always agree with Gene, but I do in this case.  If there are peer-reviewed publications linking pathogens isolated from ballast water that have been found to infect and cause SCTLD or any other coral disease,  please share.

Listers, As I have pointed out many times the huge Staghorn forest at
San Salvador perished in less than 3 months in 1983----along with
Diadema. San Salvadore is way east of the Bahama Bank surrounded by deep
blue clear water---a long way up current and up wind of the Panama
canal. As for the present situation I am not aware of any evidence that
the cause of coral diseases is coming from ballast water. Gene
