A survey of herbarlum material in the collections of the Br~tlsh \luseum (Natural History), London, UK, and the Fbjksherbarium, Leiden, The Yetherlands. indicated that wasting-disease-llke damage patterns occurred in eelgrass Zostera n~arina L of the British Isles and the Netherlands long before the epidemic of the 1930's caused the notorious decline of this species along the North-Atlantic coasts of Europe and North America Herbarium records indicate little correlation with published records…

TLDR
Investigation of the die-back of eelgrass in the thirties in the Dutch Wadden Sea found both Labyrinthula and a Chaetophoracean endophytic alga to be presumably responsible for the decline, during the quest for the ultimate cause of the wasting disease.
Before and after wasting disease in common eelgrass Zostera marina along the French Atlantic coasts: a general overview and first accurate mapping.
TLDR
The first accurate mapping of the Z. marina beds before wasting disease occurred is presented and their spatial recolonization since the 1950s in the Chausey Archipelago (France), which contains large Z.marina beds.
Quantitative PCR Reveals Strong Spatial and Temporal Variation of the Wasting Disease Pathogen, Labyrinthula zosterae in Northern European Eelgrass (Zostera marina) Beds
TLDR
It is concluded that L. zosterae infection is common (84% infected populations) in (northern) European eelgrass populations with highest abundances during the summer months, and provides a baseline for further studies on the causes of pathogenic outbreaks of L. Zosterae.
Correlating Multiple Players in the Mass-wasting of Seagrass
Seagrasses provide many critical ecosystem services including habitat for commercial fisheries, shoreline stabilization and primary production. Global seagrass wasting events in the 1930s and 1940s
Wasting disease regulates long-term population dynamics in a threatened seagrass
The role of disease in the long-term dynamics of threatened species is poorly quantified, as well as being under-represented in ecology and conservation management. To understand persistent

In the archives of the State Institute of Fisheries Research a handwritten report of A. van der Werff on the wasting disease ofZostera marina L. in the Waddensea in 1932 and 1933 is kept. It contains

TLDR
It is proven that the causal organism of the present epidemic is a pathogenic strain of Labyrinthula, which was suspected, but never conclusively shown to cause the 1930s wasting disease.
