Over the past 4 weeks we have been experiencing a massive 
fish-kill involving only catfish.  They are washing up onto the 
beaches in West Central Florida.  Dead fish are seen daily 
floating in the Gulf of Mexico and in Tampa Bay.  The local news 
and weather people in Bradenton and Sarasota say that the cause 
is "unknown" and that "not much is known about catfish" however 
scientists suspect that it is a "parasite."  Does anyone out 
there know of epidemics in saltwater catfish?
