Re: Redondo 8/24/19 - Six-Gill

So I think the wound above the shark's pectoral fin is just a normal marking, and not a wound. Both these sharks have similar markings on both sides:

Re: Please report any sightings on Yellow Eye & Canary Rockfish in Puget Sound

Looks like the canary has the streaks on it's face like the blue rockfish, and the yellowtail doesn't.

Re: OMS Doubles valves need crossbar

I'm thinking of replacing my OMS manifold, just because it takes like, 20 turns just to turn a valve on or off. Total PITA when ding a valve drill.

Cove 2 Seal

Has anyone given this seal a name yet? I'm talking about the lighter colored one with the tan patch on it's lower left hand flank. I've seen it on like, 90% of the dives I've done at Cove 2 for the last few months. I feel like if it's that much of a regular, it should have a name. Fishchomp McSiltsp...

Manacled sculpins on the buoy lines at Cove 2

There are a number of manacled sculpins on the yellow buoy lines, at around 10-15 feet or so. I tried to get a picture of them, but my camera crapped out tonight. (The flash stopped working, meaning the strobe won't fire, meaning black pictures! Yay!) If you've never seen one, or you want to get a p...

Re: new record

On open circuit no less. 32.12 ATM, and with a good consumption of 0.5 cf/m, an AL80 lasts 5 minutes. I'm guessing he looked like a huge jumble of tanks with two tiny little legs sticking out while descending.

Alki Fishing Reef. I've been trying to do more REEF surveys there, since it's a bit under-represented in the DB.

Puget Salad

Is when you come up from a dive covered in sea lettuce, eelgrass, and whatever else the tide brought in, missing only dressing.

There, now it's googleable.

The only critter I occasionally stop looking at, or for, is the coonstripe shrimp, because they're so ubiquitous. I have to remind myself to look for them sometimes.
