11 ) and certain types of branching colonies which contain small crabs and shrimps (termed commensals) that defend the coral from predators. Like all corals (which are related to jellyfish) massive corals have stinging cells (containing nematocysts) which prevent them from being preyed upon or overgrown and which are used to immobilise small animals when feeding.


2. AIMS Crown-of-Thorns Starfish - Outbreaks
These stages represent the main changes in abundance of the crown-of-thorns starfish and its coral prey: Stage 1. Before the outbreak (high live coral cover and very few crown-of thorns starfish) (see Fig. It may take several months for reefs to go from stage 1 (before the outbreak) to stage 2 (start of the outbreak) and it usually takes a further 6-/2 months before the crown-of-thorns.


3. AIMS Crown-of-Thorns Starfish - A Problem
At the beginning of 1985 the Crown of Thorns Starfish Advisory Committee (COTSAC), which comprised an expert group of scientists and managers, stated that the crown-of-thorns starfish posed a major management problem to areas within the Great Barrier Reef. This lack of information must be overcome if scientists and managers are to make rational and informed decisions with respect to the.


4. AIMS Crown-of-Thorns Starfish - Predators
The predators most commonly observed to feed on crown-of-thorns starfish are: the giant triton shell (Charonia tritonis) Whilst predation has been observed mostly on adults it is likely that it is also responsible for high mortality amongst the early life history stages when the starfish is most vulnerable.


5. Earthbeat: Crown of Thorns Star Fish Outbreak
Scientists researching the Great Barrier Reef say another outbreak of the Crown of Thorns Starfish has begun. Lindy Woodward took a boat trip out to Arlington Reef off Cairns with the scientists. It seems that unlike in previous outbreaks they ar


6. AIMS Crown-of-Thorns Starfish - Feeding
Several different types of food are consumed throughout the various stages of the life cycle of the crown-of-thorns starfish . These alternative foods include; soft corals, algae, clams, encrusting organisms, gastropods, gorgonians, hydrozoans and sea anemones.
