Warm sunny weather makes for a good survey day

I want to give a big “Mahalo” to Cassidy, Devon and Rachel for helping me complete two benthic habitat surveys. The visibility was not the best, but the water temperature and weather were much nicer this time. In addition, the coral size and frequency survey was completed so quickly, that I think it is time to incorporate a fish survey with the benthic habitat survey. I will post more on this soon!

Here are a couple pictures from the survey:

  2. Wow Heather! What wonderful pictures. The photo of the Mound Coral (Porites evermanni) reminds me of dark chocolate. Love the sun rays in your photo of Rachel snorkeling. Thanks for the coral lessons. ; ) Joni

  3. Flying or Helmet Gurnard !!! Super photo !!! Guess you had to be in stealth mode to get this one.
