In this undated photo provided by the Oregon Coast Aquarium, an afflicted sea star's arm, also know as a ray, walks away from its body. A disease that has been killing starfish on the West Coast has made its first major appearance in Oregon. Oregon Coast Aquarium divers at the entrance to Yaquina Bay at Newport last month found starfish with "sea star wasting disease" that causes their arms to fall off and turn to goo.(AP Photo/Oregon Coast Aquarium)
