Recently I had an opportunity to view a Red Rock Crab tearing open and eating a clam. I was intrigued. Fortunately I had my camera (as I always do) and was able to capture some video. These animals are native to Oregon waters, but are becoming more abundant to our waters and are rather tasty. Enjoy my short video and send the link out into the world.
I've just completed an update to an earlier video: Kelp Greenling Eggs. Quite a few changes.
Also, recently while on a dive in Elliott Bay, I noticed the tiniest of eggs. Rather than Kelp Greenling, these were Painted Greenling eggs. Yes, it gets confusing to me as well. Six years ago I didn't even know what either fish was. Now I can tell them apart from their eggs. The shots below will allow you to see the difference too.
Finally, on March 31, the most definitive book to date about the Salish Sea will be released. Sasquatch books and the SeaDoc Society have published 'The Salish Sea: Jewel of the Pacific Northwest'. You can preorder through multiple sites like Amazon, etc. I'm very excited . This will help to educate and enlighten people about the most beautiful part of our world.
