The Queen was spotted at Shark’s Cove yesterday!

The neat thing about doing REEF surveys is that you never know what you will see.  I was lucky enough to see a rare fish yesterday while at Shark’s Cove.  The Queen Nenue is the yellow morph of the endemic Hawaiian Chub (Kyphosus hawaiiensis), and is a rare sight anywhere in Hawai’i.  I also love Shark’s Cove because of the variety of species that can be found there.  Some of the other more rare species I saw included the Crown of Thorns, Spectacled Parrotfish, and Goslin’s Fangblenny.  Here are some photos from my survey:
