Bill, thanks for the article. On the Cape, most of us have seen a few striped bass with lesions. Whether they are a result of mycobacteriosis, I dofn't know, but suspect they are. The cause of the diesease is not really known. Two possibilities for the diesease have been been described in various media:
1. The high abount of animal waste/fertilizer effluent in the bay.
2. Stress as a result of the menhaden stock decline in the Cheasepeake.
