I saw this episode of Octonauts. There weren't any robots.

I'll ask Skynet if it has any plans.

They should genetically engineer the starfish to taste like chocolate.  I bet lots of people would lick a chocolate starfish.

This was a cool idea, back around 2015.
It even had press coverage and won an award for being a cool idea, and even has a crappy wikipedia page full of dead links.

The project seems to be dead or on hold.
the latest news is from March 2018

I don't know if the new version called RangerBot didn't work very well, there isn't a big starfish problem now, or they can find no funding.

Then again it is just one of the many projects of the 2 university guys involved.
