    So fish and other sea creatures don't spread it, but divers do? Not sure I'm seeing the full picture here. I've never heard of this, but it seems like a pathogen that is moving with or without human interaction...

    I think closing off sites to prevent spread is magical thinking. All it will do is put more diver pressure on the west side sites. Grand Cayman was already nearly off my list because of crowded conditions, cost, traffic. If you add dead reefs to that mix, GC will definitely not be in my future plans.

    This is very bad news for the Cayman Islands.
