About Those Holes In Shoreline Rocks

Francie Diep had a great story last year about the sea urchin and sea star die off along California's coast. You should read it here.  The culprit was an algae bloom. The likes of which was one of the most unusual and dramatic die-offs marine biologists have ever recorded according to the article.

What interested me was this picture.  It shows how those holes are made all over rocks. I guess I had never thought about it before. That's what it looks like when a species gets evicted.
On a brighter note there is this story from the daily mail that says the sea stars are starting to mount a comeback.
