Controlling Crown of Thorns #3

These divers are working on a boat that is killing COTS in the old way with multiple injections of sodium bi-sulphate so they were very keen to learn new easier ways. After conducting the tests on the reefs adjacent to the Research Station, they were convinced that this was indeed a much improved method of COTS control.
