"Fathom" the GPO at Redondo

Post by orcasc205 » Tue Jun 23, 2020 6:24 pm

As you may have seen, the MaST Center released a GPO last week named Fathom. The people at Seattle Dive Tours saw him under the large pipe the next day. Laurie and I dove today to see him and he was still hanging out under the pipe with a nice pile of discarded crab shells around him. It's a great opportunity to see a huge GPO in a very accessible dive site (poor viz notwithstanding.)

I saw him...he is too far back to get any decent pictures.
I hope he migrates to the boat when he gets bigger.
I hope he sticks around.

Kneedeep and I dove Redondo this afternoon and Fathom was still hanging out under the pipe.
