Chris and List:

I have not been able to see such numbers. In the red drum kept in earthen
ponds and reservoirs here in Ecuador the most I could see is a big spot turn
into a cluster of four to six smaller ones, but nothing more. I am enclosing a
JPEG of the fish we used to have in CENAIM, one of them carries a little spot
near the tail, the other ones lost it already. These fish were always kept in
sea water (34-35 ppt), but that obviously does not make any difference.
