Subject: Slippery dick disease -not a joke

I am a grad student studying coral reef fishes in South Florida -mainly off
the coast of Broward Co.  In the last couple weeks of diving I have noticed
that a large percentage of 5-7cm slippery dicks (Halichoeres bivittatus)
appear to have fleshy lesions growing upon them.  Has anyone in our area or
elsewhere in the Caribbean come across these apparently diseased fish?  Is
anyone familiar with species-specific diseases which affect particular
age/size classes of a population?
