Subject: The January 1998 Turtle Island Atlantic Spotted Dolphin Mass Stranding
The following information was obtained via Technical Remote Viewing (TRV). (For background information about TRV methods and techniques, refer to www.trv-psitech.com):
1. PSI TECH has identified the causal agent in the Turtle Island mass stranding as a trematod parasite. A number of animals were seriously infected.
2. Careful analysis strongly implicates a Nasitrema sp. fluke, (although, Cyclochis sp., such as C. campula, C. pilliata, C. oblonga, cannot unequivocally be ruled out).
3. Also, we have not established that the terminal infection site was in loco cerebral and/or cerebellar, as a result of possible internal parasite migration.
We hope that this information can assist future necropsies, augment regional marine mammal parasitology and pathology research, and enhance the Republic of Venezuela's cetacean preservation efforts.
