Boaters help Haiti by donating sails for shelter


BY BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer
The boating community is making an impact on Haiti
by donating sails to be used as temporary shelters by the
country's earthquake victims.
Hundreds of donations have already arrived since the
campaign took off in early February. A huge hanger on the
grounds of Shake-A-Leg Miami's waterfront headquarters
in Coconut Grove is being used as a drop off point for the
sails and other supplies. The island country was devastat-
ed by the catastrophic quake on Jan. 12.
The outpouring of support for the drive has been sub-
stantial, bringing in inquires from boaters across the
United States and Caribbean, said Harry Horgan, presi-
dent of Shake-A-Leg Miami, a non-profit organization
that offers sailing programs to children and adults with
physical, developmental and economic challenges.
Hundreds of sails have arrived at the group's 150-by-
150-foot hanger. Many have already been delivered on
cargo ships and erected for shelter.
"We've collected at least 100 pallets, possibly more,"
Horgan said. "It's an innovative idea that's brought the
sailing community together."
Shake-A-Leg Miami's involvement with the drive
came after a phone call from Lynn Fitzpatrick, a freelance
journalist who specializes in reporting on regattas and the
marine industry. Fitzpatrick, a former Coconut Grove res-
ident who now lives in California, said she immediately
thought of Shake-A-Leg when she presented her idea for
the sails campaign.
Fitzpatrick came up with the plan after traveling to
Miami to assist a friend involved with disaster relief

Wildlife deaths from January cold snap keep mounting

---- I E II


BY ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Fishing Writer
By the time we stop dwelling on how bad the January fish
kill was, we'll all have a better idea of how bad it really was.
That will take a while. Just now, it's hard to overlook how
bad it still looks with most of the casualty assessments at pre-
liminary stages.
It appears especially bad in Everglades National Park's
vast marine area, part of Biscayne National Park and a few
other areas where careful survey methods have been used.

Fatalities mount
Here are some samples from the most detailed fish fatal-
ity reports.
Everglades National Park: "We have compiled over 150
observations that indicate large areas where many marine fish
were killed in Florida Bay, Whitewater Bay, Gulf Coast rivers,
and other marine areas," states a report by park scientists.
"The observations suggest that tens, if not hundreds, of
thousands of common sportfish species such as snook and tar-
pon were killed by the cold."
They compiled a fatality list of those and other species -
pilchards, barracuda, needlefish, hogfish, ladyfish, cowfish,
bonefish, gray (mangrove) snapper, mullet, catfish, goliath
grouper, filefish, lookdown, mojarra, jack crevalle, pinfish,
burrfish (a puffer), grunts, redfish, four shark species, floun-
der, spadefish and angelfish.
Everglades biology chief Dave Hallac with Jeff Kline,
Jimi Sadle, Sonny Bass, Tracy Ziegler and Skip Snow com-
piled the report.
It covered the last two weeks of January and also docu-

mented other casualties, including manatees, crocodiles, alli-
gators, rare butterflies and plants.
"Over the last two weeks, more than 60 dead manatees
have been observed throughout the park's marine waters," it
said. "Over 70 dead crocodiles were observed. It is likely that
more manatees and crocodiles were killed by the cold, but
were obscured by mangroves and difficult to see during our
aerial surveys."
A crocodile found dead in Buttonwood Canal was known
to the staff. They tagged it in 1986 when it was a hatchling.
Dead, it was 13 feet long and weighed 450 pounds.

Unprecedented statistics

Fish and Wildlife Commission report said. "More than 4,500
sea turtles were rescued from the cold water in January.
Manatee carcasses continue to appear, putting the deaths for
2010 at more than 200 after only one month. For comparison,
the highest number of manatee deaths for a single calendar
year is 429."
On the positive side, FWC said at least 80 percent of the
rescued turtles lived, and a dozen rescued manatees were in
rehabilitation.
Although there's evidence that tarpon found refuge in
warmer Atlantic depths off Miami, there's other evidence sug-
gesting major losses elsewhere.

Largemouth bass still plentiful despite winter's big chill


BY ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Fishing Columnist
Optimists are let down rather
often. The biggest fall the hardest,
especially when engaged in the
high-hopes pastime of fishing. A tug
on the line feels like a fish but turns
out to be a water weed.
Contrariwise, pessimists are
S.. ;seldom disappointed and once in a
While they get a nice surprise: A
tug on the line feels like a weed,
but it's a fish.
Both categories of fishing-doer were slugged in January
by the worst attack of cold Florida weather that most of us can
remember. Big chill, big kill.
What died? Snook, tarpon and bonefish, the saltwater
prizes, plus snappers and most grouper species. Butterfly pea-
cock, the freshwater fighting star, was felled by cold, its only
enemy other than alligators.
How many died? By now, wild guesses have been refined
to educated guesses. Pretty soon some of those will be con-
verted to "official estimates," hedged with phrases like "as
many as," which will sound way more authoritative than
"some say hundreds of thousands or maybe millions."
Optimists rebound quickly, grinning.
"I'm sure it won't be so bad this month!" Mr. 0 yips
cheerfully.
Pessimists frown, expecting strong cold fronts a week or
so apart all through February. That's climatology. It means
they know how February works. Sometimes it works over-
time into the first week of March.
"Don't put your woolies away yet," says Mr. P, who
wants to applaud but dares not.
The keyboard tapper here enjoys fishing with Mr. 0,
stands philosophically with Mr. P and rigs up for whatever
comes along. There might be fish just around the next bend.
Maybe not the ones we want most. We'll take them anyway.
Harder pressed than the rest, people who earn their living
by taking other people fishing have to find ways to cope. It's
like making decent wine from sour grapes.

and the area near Flamingo in Everglades National Park.
Both are homes to many fish species. Most guides special-
ize in one to a few. He specializes in whatever's biting,
which makes him a good example to the rest of us.
"I will continue to fish my charters with the same
approach as I always have fish for the fish that is available
each day I am on the water," Sherman told me and repeated
on his website for the tourists and snowbirds who are the bulk
of his clientele.
Optimists and pessimists alike can profit by following
that advice. Vast as the kill was, it was worse in some areas
(Florida Bay, Whitewater Bay, and the upper Keys) than in
others (Miami-Fort Lauderdale) where it also was bad but not
as bad as that.
Here is Sherman's post-kill outlook with February just
beginning:
"Snook populations did very well in the Miami area due
to many deepwater areas [where] the fish fled to escape the
cold. Tarpon moved offshore where they were safe. Bonefish
took a big hit but the schools are large and have already
returned to the shallow flats."
That's relative, of course. In this heavily fished area, the
populations of those species as well as snapper, grouper and
others have been reduced considerably. Many didn't find tol-
erable water temperatures in time to duck the one-two punch
of fierce cold fronts. Short tidal canals that were suitable
refuge for the first one were no match for the coup de grace
that followed on Jan. 12.
Therefore the stubborn among us should revise their
expectations, like the practical Mr. Pessimist, or lighten
up and look for whatever else is swimming around hun-
gry. Seatrout and mackerel are cold-hardy, and before
long the battling, delicious bluefish should be chopping
baits off our leaders.
I'm still going to shift my concentration from snook to
potluck fishing the shorelines of Biscayne Bay where canoes
and fishing kayaks can be paddled safely. Next time on
Florida and Whitewater Bays, I'll rig for redfish with the same

rods and reels I'd been using for snook.
For years, I've heard about a small population of big red-
fish somewhere in Biscayne Bay remnants of a restocking
experiment, abandoned in the early 1990s. It's time now to
concentrate on finding them.
It will be harder to adjust to changes in fresh water, where
the gaudily decorated butterfly peacock endured a catastrophe
that may be proportionately worse than the harm to saltwater
gamefish.
Adjust we must, and we can thanks to the good old reli-
able largemouth bass. With reduced competition from pea-
cocks and other exotics such as Mayan cichlids and
Oscars, which died too bass took uncontested dibs on all
the forage minnows.
If you're a largemouth purist, you're thrilled but unable to
imagine the loss to us sports who love peacocks and to the few
guides who have made them a specialty.
The first of that band, Alan Zaremba, covers a territory
ranging from southern Miami-Dade County to Lakes Ida and
Osborne with their vast canal network in Palm Beach County.
Until mid-January, that was the northern limit of the peacock's
range.
In February, Zaremba talked with Kelly Gestring, head of
the state's exotic fish lab in Boca Raton, and relayed news that
was sad but not surprising.
"The northern line for peacock bass is now considered
the Miami-Dade/Broward County line," he said, reminding
me that the once-abundant peacock also took a fierce blow
well south of that border. The Snake Creek, Biscayne,
Tamiami and Snapper Creek canals, between the county line
and the Coral Gables-Kendall areas, were turned into liquid
cemeteries for exotics.
They can't have many survivors, but we who prefer pea-
cock can still enjoy largemouth fishing, which has been mar-
velous almost everywhere.
Hooray for that, but Zaremba has invested 21 years in
making his reputation as a peacock guide.
To fmd peacock, he now must travel further from his
Hollywood base through South Florida's worst traffic to
waters that harbor his fish but often lack sufficient launching

is "spectacular."


thing we knew, we were in 8- to 10-foot seas. With every
wave that approached, we lost sight of the horizon. We fought
these waves for a couple hours as we attempted to get back to

catch any fish that day.
Your most memorable experience?
Every day boating is memorable but the trip down to the

Giving a damn

about a dram

BY MARK ERCOLIN
Waterfront News Columnist
This July will mark the 40th anniver-
sary of the British Navy's elimination of
the rum ration for crewmembers, which
ended a 300-plus year tradition.
Actually, liquor has played a tradi-
tional role in maritime commerce since
its very beginning. Early on, maritime
tradesmen realized that fermented pro-
duce could travel longer than its fresh
equivalent, and would sell for almost the
same price.
They also soon discovered that fresh
water kept in barrels went bad rather
quickly, but weak beer and wine (partic-
ularly beer) would keep for the voyage's
duration and could be used as a substitute
for water to re-hydrate the crew.
It seems most crews didn't mind.
Harder liquor was also distributed during
their rest time as a source of diversion
from the grueling rigors and the boring
nature of long-term ship life.
As modem advances in technology
required quick reflexes over a strong
back, the era of the sober sailor came to
the Royal Navy along with the rest of
the maritime industry.
But today liquor is very much a
diversion for many cruise line passengers
sailing between ports along with food
and gambling.
Now, here's the problem. Virtually
the entire voyage is a time of diversion.
Unlike crew, passengers are generally
less capable of negotiating the decks of a
vessel than the average seaman. Even on
the largest and most luxurious cruise
ship, passengers will experience difficul-
ty not only because they're unfamiliar
with deck layout, but due to the basic
design limits of any vessel.
Even the largest ship rocks in the
water. Combine that with alcohol con-


sumption and problems can occur.
Just how much responsibility the
cruise line has over passenger safety in
these circumstances depends.
Traditionally under common law,
those who sell liquor are not responsible
for the inebriated actions or accidents of
the parties they sold it to. However,
beginning with the temperance move-
ment of the 1850s, many states began to
enact what became known as "dram
shop laws."
Essentially, these laws were
designed to place a certain amount of
responsibility upon the innkeeper or bar
owner for accidents or injuries resulting
from, or caused by, people to whom they
sold alcoholic drinks.
In some states dram laws can be
rather strict but in other states, they
are actually designed to exculpate the bar
owner from certain liabilities.
In Florida for example, the statute
states: "A person who sells or furnishes
alcoholic beverages to a person of lawful
drinking age shall not thereby become
liable for injury or damage caused by or
resulting from the intoxication of such
person, except that a person who willful-
ly and unlawfully sells or furnishes alco-
holic beverages to a person who is not of
lawful drinking age or who knowingly
serves a person habitually addicted to the
use of any or all alcoholic beverages may
become liable for injury or damage
caused by or resulting from the intoxica-
tion of such minor or person."
Generally interpreted, the law
exempts the liquor provider from liabili-

Reckoning


Mapping out lobster


season logistics

BY BOB SHERMAN
Waterfront News Columnist
Only 153 days till mini lobster sea-
son. So let's review some of the rules.
Only 12 lobsters per person per day
may be taken in Broward and Miami-
Dade Counties. The amount purchased at
Publix is unlimited.
The possession limit on the water is
equal to the daily bag limit, and off the
water is equal to the daily bag limit on
the first day, and double the daily bag
limit on the second day. So if you have
any lobsters from last season in your
freezer, make sure you have taken a
photo of the lobsters with a copy of the
"Miami Herald" to establish the date.
Divers are not allowed to use equip-
ment that could puncture the lobster's
shell including spears, hooks and wire
snares even though it will be boiled to
death and eaten the next day.
A saltwater license and a crawfish
permit are needed before catching lob-
sters. The license is no guarantee that you
will find any lobsters. Also, licenses are
not required if you are 65 years old. This
is another great benefit of getting old and
ranks right up there with the Golden Age
Passport and being able to order the
"Senior Slam" at Denny's.
Spiny lobster has a minimum size
limit that must be larger than a three-inch
carapace, measured in the water. If meas-
ured out of the water it will appear small-
er. The tail, once detached, must measure
five-and-a-half inches. If it measures less,
reattach it with waterproof glue and
throw the lobster back into the water.
Possession and use of a measuring
device is required at all times, and using
body parts is not allowed.
Egg-bearing lobsters must be
released unharmed. You can recognize
the eggs by an orange, yellow, brown, or


red mass found covering the bottom of
the lobster's tail. Pregnant pigs got a state
constitutional amendment. The lobster
may be next.
Panulirus argus is the Latin name for
lobsters. It is important to know this. Last
year I was at Boca Chita with my yacht
club. One of the members had caught
some lobsters, legally I hope, and we
were cooking them on the Barbie. A park
ranger approached us and asked, "Is that
an undersized lobster?"
"No," I said "it's a panulirus argus."
"OK, sorry to bother you," he replied
and he moved on. The lobster is a deca-
pod as are shrimp; made popular by
Bubba Gump.
I never understood the mini season
frenzy as the regular spiny lobster season
runs Aug. 6 through March 31. This
should be plenty of time to catch lob-
sters. But people go crazy. Three people
were killed in 2008 while diving for the
little decapods, and five more in 2009.
You'll remember an employee was tram-
pled to death at a Wal-Mart on Black
Friday in 2008 when the doors opened.
It's the same phenomena.
The lobster rules are strictly
enforced by the organized crime unit of
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission in coopera-
tion with the Spiny Lobster Advisory
Board and the Joint Spiny Lobster
Advisory Panel/Committee.
Recently two Florida Middle Keys
commercial fishermen were arrested in
Operation Freezer Bum on charges of
harvesting undersized spiny lobster. The
two men were taken to the Marathon jail.
The judge said, "I can't imagine a more
heinous crime other than maybe feeding

Cruise lines generally not held responsible

for passenger's alcohol use in Florida


ship? Currently it appears they are not liable under the
state's dram shop law even if the voyage originates from
Florida. The courts in this district seem to apply a more
classic maritime standard, stating that the ship should
"exercise reasonable care for the safety of its passengers
under the circumstances."
This is when the outcome of a case can vary based
on many factors, including observation of the passenger's
liquor consumption through the day, attitude of the pas-
senger, and even whether the drinks were offered free or
were paid for by the passenger.
On the other hand, it should also be noted that in


other districts (California for example) the courts have
had no problem applying a state dram shop law to deter-
mine the liability of a ship for the injuries of a drunken
passenger. So, at present, the legalities concerning dram
shop laws, ships, and inebriated passengers remains one
of ebb and flow.
By the way, by the time the British Navy eliminated
the rum ration, it had already been cut to a quarter of a pint
per day seems hardly worth the trouble...

a manatee with a water hose."
For a boater who doesn't eat fish or lobster, the mini
season or the regular season is just a pain in the lobster
tail. Why must lobster pots be placed in the middle of the
channel? If you have ever run over a pot, you know what
I'm talking about.
Before you dive overboard to remove the line from
your prop, you should call the FWC office to report the
incident. Molesting a lobster pot is a felony. For the incog-
nocenti, a lobster pot is like the roach motel. The lobsters
get in but they can't get out.
The bottom line is fresh lobster worth the cost?
Let's say you have a 30-foot center console with a


monthly payment of $790, dockage of $450, and $4,000
in annual insurance. That works out to about $50 a day.
Now throw in $17 for a license and $2 for the crawfish
permit and $400 of fuel and a case of Bud and you're at
about $545 for the two days.
If you're lucky enough to find 24 lobsters, it works
out to $23 per pound. Not to mention that you could
become one of the boating fatality statistics.
I'll take a limo to Islamorada Fish Company, pick up
a few whole lobsters at $5.99 per pound and have money
left over.
Bon Appetit.

Peacock fisherman:

'The strong survive'


access for his wide-beamed 20-foot boat.
To overcome that he invested reluctantly in a slender
Gheenoe, an intriguing crossbreed of canoe and flats skiff.
"It will help reopen a few areas and should be cheap-
er to operate," he told me. "I felt I would need to adapt if
I am to stay in business. Largemouth bass can't carry me
forever."
I e-mailed him a report from Everglades National
Park, where biologists found good peacock survival in the
L-31W canal along the park's eastern edge.
"Without question there are still exotic fish around but
it is a shadow of what it was just two month's ago," he
replied. This is by far the coldest winter in South Florida I
have ever seen in my 51 years and I'm afraid it isn't over yet."
Restoring the abundance of our wounded fisheries
could take a few to several consecutive years of soft win-
ters and productive spawning seasons. It might be worth
the wait.
Case in point: After a moderately rough recent win-
ter with a moderate die-off of butterfly peacock, the ones
I caught in spring and summer were consistently larger
and stronger than in five prior years.
I mentioned this to Steve Gildert, a peacock fisher-
man who also noticed and figured it out.
'The strong survive," he said, and said it again: 'The
strong survive."
Somebody please mention that to Mr. Pessimist. This
winter's been a rough one for him too.

Fishing guide: Fish returning after taking refuge in backcountry waters


Technology at Melbourne, whose talk to the Bonefish and
Tarpon Trust was reported in the Florida Keys Keynoter.
"What really worries me is the young. It's like the entire
year's class has disappeared," Shenker said.
Close to home, he took a close look at Indian River
Lagoon where, he said, "Pretty much everything died
up there."
Peter Frezza, a fishing guide who's also the
Everglades research manager for Audubon of Florida,
began surveying the consequences on Jan. 6, after the first
of two fierce cold fronts.
He continued through Jan. 24, updating his scorecard as
dead fish floated from the bottom to the surface, and made his
field notes available to "Waterfront News."
The notes document staggering losses. Here's a
sampling.
Jan. 10, northeastern Florida Bay: 'A few dozen dead and
dying adult snook (24-38 inches) in Dynamite Pass. A couple
thousand dead striped mojarra at the mouth of Taylor River. A
few dozen dead snook (20-40 inches) and tarpon at the mouth
of Taylor River. Lots of snook and tarpon still alive here
though, but in bad shape and upside down. Dozens of dead
and dying tarpon at the mouth of McConnick Creek.
'About 20 dead goliath grouper up to 80 pounds at the
mouth of McCormick Creek... Saw a couple hundred dead
bonnethead sharks and barracuda throughout northeast
Florida Bay... Saw a total of 26 dead species of fish in Florida
Bay today."
Jan. 12: 'At one of our research sites on the Turkey Point
power plant property, I observed an extraordinarily high num-
ber of adult tarpon (alive and well) in the large main channel
leading from Biscayne Bay to the power plant. Also bonnet-
head sharks, lemon sharks, southern stingrays, barracudas
alive and doing fine in here. A quick look at the Biscayne Bay
shoreline outside the canal revealed many dead bottom fish
scattered about (mainly grunts, snapper, cowfish).
"Stopped on the C-111 canal off the 18-mile stretch and
on the saltwater side observed about a dozen people cast net-
ting and dip netting dead and dying striped mojarra by the
thousands. Also observed the snagging and cast netting of a
number of large snook. I reported this to FWC law enforce-
ment. The snook were all alive here but they looked in bad
shape, disoriented and milling about on the surface, some
with white spots forward of the dorsal fin."
Jan. 13, northeastern Florida Bay: "Dozens of dead
juvenile tarpon (10-15 pounds) and large barracuda floating
now on the north side of Cross Bank. Hundreds of dead
scattered ladyfish in northeast Florida Bay. On the northern
shoreline of Little Madeira Bay and around Taylor River
mouth, I estimated a couple thousand dead striped mojarra,
350 dead snook and 300 dead tarpon, 4 dead bull sharks, 500
dead gray snapper, hundreds of ladyfish, white mullet and
hardhead catfish...
"It appears that nearly all the living tarpon and snook I


saw here on the 10th are now dead... Up East Creek between
Little Madeira Bay and East Bay were 300 striped mojarra, 30
snook, 40 tarpon in same size class as the ones in Little
Madeira Bay."
Jan. 14, Flamingo-Whitewater Bay back country: "Only
a couple hundred dead tarpon and snook in and around the
boat basin at Flamingo, However hundreds more on the bot-
tom outside the marina and in the deep channels...A couple
hundred dead ladyfish in Coot Bay now floating. Many dead
snook and tarpon in Coot Bay on the bottom. Difficult to
assess how many because they have not floated yet but there
were dozens in certain spots. Also numerous dead goliath
grouper in Coot Bay.
"The number of dead ladyfish and hardhead catfish in
the Whitewater Bay system has to be in the millions...from
one spot off the shoreline over a thousand of each of these
species could be seen dead on the shoreline... On navigating
the entire eastern section of Whitewater from Tarpon Creek
to Oyster Bay, including short distances of the rivers, along
with the ladyfish, dead snook and tarpon were encountered
on just about every shoreline that was leeward to a north or
northwest wind.
"An estimate of dead snook actually seen in this area was
15,000. Estimate of dead tarpon seen in this area was 400;
these tarpon all being juveniles in the 5-15 pound range and
concentrated in the southeastern section of Whitewater Bay."

Signs of recovery
Despite all that bad news, it shouldn't be forgotten that
Florida's vast network of shorelines, streams, estuaries and


canals do contain safe places for cold-sensitive fish to duck
such a disaster if they get there in time.
Maybe enough made it to start organizing a sort of
rebirth. Bob LeMay, a guide who fishes deep in the park's
labyrinthine backcountry, reported good signs of life in
mid-February.
"For about two weeks you couldn't find a ladyfish or
small jack crevalle in Whitewater. Now they're back in
good numbers, and I'm beginning to find the snook again
as well. I suspect that the volume of fish in the interior is
far greater than any of us realize, so lots of them did sur-
vive the weather.
"I think that lots and lots of fish along the coastal areas
have moved into the interior since the kills. One day you'll
work shorelines and not see one snook, then next day they'll
be everywhere as they leave the deep backcountry creeks
and start the move back out to the coast. I'm keeping my fin-
gers crossed."
In mid-January, it seemed reasonable to wonder if snook
will ever recover as a significant population.
Those fish are so important to Florida that a research
facility and crew of scientists in St. Petersburg are devoted just
to them. At the end of January, it might have seemed appro-
priate for Ron Taylor, the leader of that outfit, to announce an
official period of mourning.
It's a good thing he didn't.
"Things look good, or better than last week,"' he reported
on Feb. 15.
"We have many snook that survived. Many large breed-
ers. A lot got killed but it looks promising."


Shake-A-Leg collecting supplies for Haiti relief effort


"Response from the world wide sailing community
has been wonderful," she said.
Fitzpatrick recently got the opportunity to see the
sails be turned into shelters during a visit to Petit Goave in
southwestern Haiti. Most relief efforts have been focused
on Port au Prince.
The trip was initially supposed to last four days but
stretched into 10. Fitzpatrick, through a friend involved
with humanitarian aid, worked on relief efforts alongside
employees of Kiskeya Minerals, a company that operates
a quarry in the area.
"There truly is a desperate need for shelter,"
Fitzpatrick said. "The country was hit so hard. I saw shel-
ters made from bed sheets, plastic table clothes and scrap
aluminum."
The sails will provide more durable protection. The
larger the piece, the better. But all sizes are welcome.
"Even the smaller sails can be put to good use as bed-
ding," she said.
Canvas covers, bimini tops and lines are also needed,

The sails drive is one of several outreach efforts that
Shake-A-Leg Miami supports by non-profits, private cor-
porations and shipping companies. Shake-A-Leg has been
involved with charitable efforts stateside, including help-
ing victims of Hurricane Katrina in the Gulf states.
Haiti marks a first time involvement with an interna-
tional relief effort, said Ken Batchelor, vice president of
CMC Construction in Miami and a board member Shake-
A-Leg.
In addition to being a drop off site for supplies, other
efforts by Shake-A-Leg include a kayak-a-thon that col-
lected several crates of food, Batchelor said.
Fitzpatrick said she intends to keep the sails campaign
going, with the hope of enlarging the project to help dis-
aster victims worldwide.
Donors are happy to help. John Malloy, owner of
Second Wind Sails in Fort Lauderdale, contributed four
large sails.
"When the sails are not useable for boats, this is put-
ting them to good use," Malloy said.
Carla Schiefer, of Coconut Grove Sails and Canvas,
filled up a truck bed. "What a great idea," Schiefer said.

Skin cancer affects certain dog breeds, light-colored cats


BY LISA DIBERNARDI, DVM
Waterfront News Columnist
It's widely accepted that ultraviolet light plays a signifi-
cant role in human skin cancers. We have all been taught to be
respectful of the sun's rays and protect ourselves with sun
block and appropriate clothing
But what about our pets? Many pet owners do not realize
that certain dog breeds and light colored cats are vulnerable to
skin cancers, especially in sun-drenched South Florida.
Chronic sun exposure can lead to the development of
squamous cell carcinoma, known as SCC one of the more
common types of skin cancers that can occur particularly
in animals with unpigmented or lightly pigmented skin.
The sun's rays contain both ultraviolet A (UV-A) and
ultraviolet B (UV-B) rays. Cumulative, long term exposure to
the UV-B part of the sun's rays is thought to cause cancer by
directly affecting the genetic material of cells and some gene
functions, as well as indirectly by impairing the immune sys-
tem's response.

Areas of concern
In white or light colored cats, the tumors typically grow
around the skin of the eyes (eyelids), the ears, face and skin of
the nose. One in four affected cats will have multiple lesions.
This cancer generally afflicts older cats around 12 years of age.
Dogs typically develop the disease at around age 8. The
most common area is on the flank and abdomen (belly) skin.
Commonly affected breeds include Dalmatians, whippets,
and white English bull terriers.
SCC tumors account for only 5 percent of all skin tumors
in dogs and 15 percent in cats. In certain parts of the country,
SCC can be responsible for 18 percent of all skin tumors.
In horses and cattle, SCC occurs more commonly around
the eye and surrounding supportive structures, particularly in
Paints and Quarter horses.
Horses with tumors on or around the eye on average
are 13 years of age. Tumors of the sheath are more likely
to occur in Appaloosas and Quarter horses at an average
age of 15 years.


Dog breeds at risk and any animal that spends a lot of
time in the Florida sun should be kept out of the sun between
10 a.m. and 2 p.m. when it's at its strongest. If this is not pos-
sible, use light-colored cloth to cover vulnerable areas such as
the flank and belly skin. Pets that have recently been shaved
close to the skin should be protected with clothing.
(Obviously any clothing would have to be removed for bath-
room breaks).
Sunblock can be safe for dogs and cats provided they
don't lick the lotion. One option is to apply sunblock and then
distract the animal with play or food until it has a chance to
properly dry. However, check labels to determine that no zinc
is in the sunblock for it is toxic if ingested. It is also advis-
able to avoid lotions containing salicylate.
While sunblock designed for babies may work, there
are lotions specifically made for dogs and cats. Follow
directions. Waterproof sunblock with a high SPF is recom-
mended. For horses, fly masks can also offer minimal to
moderate sun protection.

Diagnosis and treatment
Annual or biannual physical examinations at your veteri-
narian will help to best identify any areas of concern.


Skin cancer: it's not just for
humans. Dogs that develop the
disease are usually older than
age 8. The most common area
is on the flank and abdomen skin.
Commonly affected breeds include
Dalmatians, whippets, and white
English bull terriers. Light colored
cats are also in danger.




SCC of the skin initially can appear as a small scab, loss
of hair, or as an ulcerated or proliferation of (raised) tissue and
reddened area. These lesions are usually not painful.
It's advisable not to pick or scrub lesions. Diagnosis is
made through a biopsy that involves extracting a piece of the
tissue then submitted for examination by a pathologist.
Lesions are best managed when small. Treatment modal-
ities address the local nature of the disease and include sur-
gery or radiation therapy.
Photodynamic therapy is also successful. This modality
uses a photosensitizer (a substance that accumulates in tumor
tissue) that when exposed to a particular wavelength of light
causes destruction of the tumor cells. Photodynamic therapy
is only available in a few institutions because it requires spe-
cialized equipment.
Remember, the likelihood of a cancerous lesion in your
pets is far less likely than that of a benign one. However, any
abnormal growth or hairless, ulcerated or reddened lesion
should be evaluated by your veterinarian.
Please continue to have safe fun in the sun with your pet!
Dr. DiBernardi is a veterinarian oncologist board
certified in both medical and radiation oncology. She is
on staff at Veterinary Specialists of South Florida.
