ParrotfishParrotfish have a series of individual teeth that fuse together to form what looks like a parrot’s beak, hence the name, parrotfish. They use their teeth to scrape the rocks and coral, digesting the algae and excreting the excess, which makes up much of the fine coral sand we find on St. John’s beaches. As the teeth wear away from such rough treatment they are replaced with more material keeping them sharp and strong.

The parrotfish in the photo is a supermale, which is a male that began life as a female.

Adult Parrotfish

Parrotfish are still plentiful on the reefs around St. John and that’s a good thing. These brightly colored fish are easy to identify because their teeth are tightly packed together and are on the outside of their jawbone giving them a parrot-like beak. It is this feature which enables the parrotfish to scrape algae off the of coral and rocks found on the reef. This process called bioeriosion has important benefits for the coral reef environment.

First, coral needs to have a clean place to grow. Rocks covered by algae would not be suitable for the beginning of new coral structures. Second, coral covered by algae could not survive and third, the scraped off algae passes through the parrotfishes’ digestive system and is excreted as sand, which comprises a good deal of the sand found on St. John beaches. One parrotfish can produce as much as 200 pounds of sand in a year.

Parrotfish in bagBefore parrotfish go to sleep, they secrete a mucus cocoon around themselves within which they spend the night.

Below Average Hurricane Season Predicted
By Lynda Lohr — April 11, 2014

There was good news Thursday from the Colorado State University hurricane prediction team. Researcher Phil Klotzbach said he thinks the upcoming season will see a below average number of storms.

“The tropical Atlantic has anomalously cooled over the past several months, and the chances of a moderate to strong El Niño event this summer and fall appear to be quite high,” Klotzbach said in a press release issued Thursday. “Historical data indicate fewer storms form in these conditions.”

The team expects nine named storms during the Atlantic hurricane season, which runs from June 1 and Nov. 30. Of those nine storms, researchers expect three to become hurricanes and one to reach major hurricane strength with sustained winds of 111 miles per hour or greater…. read more

Senate Looks at Net Metering Changes
By Bill Kossler — April 5, 2014

Household-sized solar power producers will still be able to sell excess power to the Water and Power Authority at retail price through net metering, but larger producers will receive a smaller “Feed In Tariff” payment reflecting WAPA’s costs, if a bill approved in committee Friday becomes law.

When net metering was set up in 2007, it allowed a one-to-one exchange rate for electricity between the utility and net-metering customers. That means that when the solar panels on a customer’s roof put 1kWh of electricity onto the grid, that customer receives a credit allowing them to take 1kWh of electricity back from WAPA’s power plants at night when their panels are ineffective for no charge.

WAPA Executive Director Hugo Hodge told the Energy and Environmental Protection Committee that, because WAPA has to maintain the grid and this does not take into account WAPA’s avoided cost, this means other ratepayers subsidize net metering ratepayers to a certain extent.

To illustrate this principle by taking it to its logical extreme and considering a hypothetical case where every household had solar panels and generated enough power on average during the day to pay for their night time consumption. In this extreme hypothetical case, WAPA would receive no ratepayer revenue at all, but WAPA would still have to pay for fuel to produce power at night and would still have to employ crews to maintain the grid, despite no revenue. At low levels of net metering, the subsidy effect is small but as full-retail price net metering increases as a proportion of power generation, the cost to WAPA also increases until a tipping point is reached.

WAPA’s “avoided cost” is a calculation of the difference between full retail rate of net metering and the rate at which WAPA does not lose money, forcing it to pass that cost onto its paying customers…. read more

St. John Marine Creatures: Queen Triggerfish

Old Wife (Queen Triggerfish)

Old Wife used to be plentiful on the reefs around St. John. They were easy to catch, whether by line, spear or trap. I used to catch a lot of them when I fished commercially on St. John back in the days. Now, you hardly see them at all.

Selling them was another story. Although a tasty fish, their tough skin presented a problem. First off, they needed to be skinned instead of scaled and not everyone had that particular skill, leading many to avoid buying them.

The other problem was that fish lacking scales and/or fins were forbidden to the congregation of the Seventh Day Adventist Church as well as to the zero observant kosher Jews on the island at the time. This is debatable as some people take the position that Old Wife does in fact have tiny scales over their skin, although not readily discernible.

The problem was solved when I discovered that Eric Christian, who operated the only real restaurant on St. John in those days called Eric’s Hilltop, featured Old Wife soup on his luncheon menu. Eric would buy all the Old Wife I could supply and, by the way, when Old Wife is boiled, the skin comes off easily.

Swimming could help spur USVI’s tourism industry
Published: April 1, 2014

Creating a national sports policy for the Virgin Islands has been in the news lately, with the Senate Committee on Culture, Historic Preservation, Youth and Recreation holding hearings about the topic on both St. Thomas and St. Croix in recent weeks.

Sen. Myron Jackson, committee chairman, is drafting a bill to be vetted that would create a policy to help sports move forward in the territory.

Swimming should be an integral part of a national sports policy in the Virgin Islands. Let’s face it, we are surrounded by water. No matter what happens in the Virgin Islands, we have to travel places and are transported either on the water or over it. In most areas of the Virgin Islands, we are never more than a few minutes from either the Caribbean Sea or the Atlantic Ocean. It’s common sense that we should embrace our island’s innate gifts, and swimming in the Virgin Islands is one of them.

Swimming is an ideal sport to attract tourism to the Virgin Islands. Currently, the Virgin Islands hosts the annual Beach to Beach Power Swim on St. John and the annual St. Croix Coral Reef Swim. These are both ocean swims that attract many hundreds of people to the Virgin Islands…. read more

Man drowns during attempt to swim from Coki Point to Thatch Cay on Saturday night
By ALDETH LEWIN (Daily News Staff)
Published: April 1, 2014

ST. THOMAS – The body of a drowned man was recovered near Thatch Cay on Sunday.

The man had set off about 4 p.m. Saturday with a friend to swim from Coki Point to Thatch Cay, according to V.I. Department of Planning and Natural Resources Environmental Enforcement Assistant Director Jessica Magras Parris.

“His friend made it over, but he didn’t,” she said.

Ricardo Castrodad, spokesman for the U.S. Coast Guard Sector San Juan, said the federal agency got the call that a swimmer was reported missing the next day.

“We got a call around 10 a.m. Sunday of an individual that had gone swimming with a friend in the area of Coki Point,” Castrodad said. “They were caught in the current and separated and the survivor was able to make it to Thatch Cay where he reported spending the night and then got to St. Thomas the next day and made the report.”

The Coast Guard was providing support for the St. Thomas International Regatta on the East End, and diverted a vessel from the regatta to help look for the man.

“Around 11 a.m., we located the body of the other swimmer who had been reported missing,” Castrodad said. “We were able to recover the body and transfer the person to DPNR personnel via boat to boat transfer.”

The body was found near Thatch Cay, he said…. read more

Man found dead Saturday after swimming near Hull Bay
Daily News Staff)
Published: April 1, 2014

A man was found dead Saturday of an apparent drowning near Hull Bay.

The incident was called into 911 at 12:37 p.m. Saturday as a water rescue/dead on arrival at Dorothea Condos.

St. Thomas Rescue Chief Joseph Cranston Jr. said the volunteer rescue workers had a boat in the water, but the body washed to shore where it was recovered.

He said it was a man, believed to have been swimming when he was swept out to sea.

Cranston said the body was recovered just around the bend from Hull Bay.

“It washed back up to shore, it went out to sea and then came back in on the current,” he said.

Cranston said the seas on the northside of the island were particularly rough and dangerous for swimming.

“The seas were very rough, especially the one down in the Hull Bay area,” he said…. read more

2 charged with cultivating pot after neighbor alerts authorities
By FIONA STOKES (Daily News Staff)
Published: April 1, 2014

ST. CROIX – Two young men have been released from jail on unsecured bonds after being charged with cultivating marijuana.

Eachan Simon, 25, of Mars Hill, and Claudiston Sonson, 21, of Estate Plessen, both appeared before V.I. Superior Court Judge Harold Willocks on Monday morning and were advised of their rights after being arrested and charged Saturday with cultivating marijuana, destruction of evidence and possession of a controlled substance.

According to court documents filed by Police Officer Darryl Walcott, he and his partner were called to a disturbance Saturday afternoon in Estate Grove Place and when they arrived they met a woman who complained that someone had tampered with plastic she had covering her window, and may have been trying to break into her home.

The woman also told police that her neighbors had been growing marijuana in their backyard.

When Walcott and his partner went behind the home, they saw Sonson walking along the fence line towards the back of the property where he began pulling up what was later confirmed to be potted marijuana plants.

According to police, he was ordered to stop pulling up the plants because they were now considered evidence. Sonson, however, continued pulling up the plants and was soon joined by Simon, who pulled up additional plants which they threw over the fence in the direction of the officers, according to the court documents.

Walcott and his partner called for assistance and the two men were arrested. Walcott said a total of 44 marijuana plants were seized…. read more

Innovative could soon lose 17 channels, including MTV, BET and Comedy Central
Daily News Staff)
Published: April 1, 2014

If a threat made by Viacom/MTV Networks is made good, Innovative customers will be without 17 channels today. Despite the threat, the channels were still available to Innovative customers at press time early this morning.

Innovative Cable officials were doubtful the threat will be carried out Monday afternoon, however, and are keeping customers informed on the status of the negotiations.

Viacom/MTV Networks has been in negotiations with the National Cable Telecommunications Cooperative for some time. The cooperative is a nonprofit organization that negotiates programming fees on behalf of about 1,000 cable television providers across the country, including Innovative Cable.

According to Innovative officials, Viacom/MTV Networks are demanding fee hikes that amount to about 40 times the rate of inflation, according to Innovative officials.

“These price increases would be excessive especially in our current economic situation and extremely burdensome and unfair to our Innovative Cable TV Customers,” an Innovative written statement said…. read more

V.I. Charter Boat Rule Passes U.S. House
By Source Staff — April 2, 2014

The Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation Act of 2014 passed the U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday with a provision allowing V.I. charter boats to carry more than six passengers, according to Delegate Donna M. Christensen and Gov. John deJongh Jr., who both praised the development. The bill still needs to pass the Senate and be signed into law.

In a statement on the floor of the House, Christensen praised Transportation Committee Chairman Bill Shuster and ranking member Nick Rahall for including language in the bill that would clarify a problem that has hurt the charter boat industry in the territory.

“This is something our charter boat industry has been advocating for at least 20 years,” Christensen said on the House floor. She said when the Passenger Vehicle Safety Act was passed in 1993, it limited the number of paying passengers that may be carried aboard uninspected vessels. “Because of the existing rule, our once thriving charter yacht industry has migrated to the British Virgin Islands and estimates of revenue losses to the USVI economy range from 70 to 100 million dollars annually,” she told the House…. read more

A Local Perspective of Transfer Day at National Park Service
By Carol Buchanan — April 1, 2014

Olassie Davis, left, reads from Arnold Highfield’s book ‘Saint Croix 1650 to 1733′ with Daina King-Sall (Carol Buchanan photos).

When residents of St. Croix say, as they often do, that they are the unwanted stepchildren in the U.S. Virgins Islands, outsiders usually shrug the comment off as coming from insecurity. However, there may be some historical precedent for that feeling according to professor Olassie Davis of the University of the Virgin Islands Extension Service.

Davis presented a lecture Monday titled “A Local Perspective of Transfer Day” in which he shared several little known facts about the negotiations for the sale of the Virgin Islands to the United States in 1917. Davis said that the United States told Denmark that it did not want St. Croix; Denmark could keep it.

Denmark told the United States it was an all or none deal. So it appears the United States took ownership of St. Croix against its will.

Davis also pointed out several other little known facts about the transfer negotiations in the lecture hosted by InterXchange and the National Park Service in the Steeple Building in Christiansted.

He said France had the first bid on buying the islands from Denmark, but France never got close to the $17 million that the United States paid for it; but even the United States payment was not up to the $25 million Denmark wanted for the islands. Davis said that Denmark was not in a strong negotiating position. He said United States said, “You sell the islands to us or we will just take them.”

Davis added that his grandmother, Carmelita Hodge, who was 17 years old at the time of the transfer, said that locals did not really know about the transfer and that there wasn’t any celebration. He said local folks, at the time, had mixed feelings about the transfer and the change…. read more

Contract dispute ties up ferries
By ALDETH LEWIN (Daily News Staff)
Published: March 31, 2014

ST. THOMAS – The brand new ferryboats delivered to the territory last year are still not operational because the ferry franchise companies and the government have not executed a management contract.

Three weeks ago, Public Works Commissioner Darryl Smalls said all paper work had been finalized and the only thing holding up the launch of the vessels was a Coast Guard inspection.

“We cannot schedule the final inspection until the contract is fully executed,” said Transportation Services General Manager Kenrick Augustus.

Smalls did not return numerous phone calls last week.

The two ferries are 85-foot aluminum catamarans, each of which can carry about 250 passengers and are loaded with state-of-the-art features. The current ferries in operation belong to Varlack Ventures and Transportation Services, the companies franchised to run the St. Thomas to St. John ferry route.

However, the two new boats will belong to the V.I. government and be operated by the franchisees. At the end of January, Smalls said he expected the new vessels would be operational for the public by the end of February.

Augustus said it is a management contract, not a lease agreement, for the use of the ferries. He said the two franchise holders are not expected to pay to use the new boats.

He would not say what the sticking points are that are holding up the contract…. read more

TIME: 7:30 pm
PLACE: St John School of the Arts, Cruz Bay $5. suggested donation or become a 2014 SJFS Member ($35. individual, $50. family)

“Andrea Leland’s Yurumein (Homeland) tells the story of a physician Dr. Gill in Los Angeles originally from the Eastern Caribbean island of St. Vincent and of Carib descent returning to his hometown after twenty years. His trip, which he aptly describes as a “pilgrimage”, becomes symbolic of the efforts of his fellow Caribs to become painfully aware of the history that had been enforced on them, which is replete with negative attributes of their ancestors – “warlike”, “cannibals”, “stupid”, etc. Dr Gill’s mission in his pilgrimage is to rediscover the positive in his people’s history. He is joined by the residents who also speak of the positive characteristics of their ancestors – their bravery, deep sense of identity, and the determination to fight to death for their land.

The film is most appropriate for a people struggling to throw away a shameful past as they rediscover their true history. This applies to indigenous peoples, afro-descendants, and any other people to whom cultural revitalization is a painful process. As a region the Caribbean is the crucible par excellence for such experience, for it was here where the identity of the non-colonizers was brutally suppressed and all efforts made to extinguish it permanently.  -Joseph O Palacio, PhD

Our April 1st screening will also include two short films directed by St John residents: Janet Cook-Rutnik & Bill Stelzer

spotted trunkfish

Spotted trunkfish, Lactophrys bicaudalis

I photographed this spotted trunkfish at Hurricane Hole. I was lucky to get the photo, as they are not that common and are generally wary of divers and quickly shoot back into ledges and holes in the reef when approached. Locally, trunkfish are also boxfish and cowfish.

The Spotted trunkfish, Lactophrys bicaudalis, as well as other species of trunkfish secretes a colorless toxin that it produces from gland on their skin when they are under stress. For humans, the toxin is only dangerous if eaten and won’t harm them if they touch the fish, but marine predators, even large ones like nurse sharks can die as the result of eating a trunkfish.
