Two of our bigger purple sunflower sea stars. Neither showed any symptoms when we closed up our touch tanks at 10:00pm on May 7th, but by our first class the next day, around 1:00pm May 8th, both of them had lost arms and were showing obvious lesions on the main part of their bodies.

These giant sea stars were throughout the tide pools at minus tide. They were most easily found under rocks and in areas where they had no chance of being out of the water during the minus tide. They come in all colors but the ones I seen were bright orange

Purple Sea Star
Pisaster ochraceus

These sea stars eat barnacles and mussels - which explains why we found them so prominently on the pilings of the Edmonds ferry dock.
