California’s state marine fish, the Garibaldi, doing what he does best- guarding his territory! This behavior reminds me of their feisty coral reef relatives (damselfishes). Notice how this patch of reef looks different than the background/nearby reef? That’s the garibalidi’s doing! He’s ridding that section of pretty much all algae and debris except red algae in prep for a female to lay her eggs. Cool stuff !! #feistyfish #garibaldi #divecalifornia #fishfacts #damselfish #lajollacove

California Two-Spot Octopus taken during a night dive at San Clemente Island. Excited that I got this shot and that it placed 5th Place in Open Macro in the 2018 #socalshootut, especially considering the conditions. Another diver on the boat described the night dive as diving in “a washing machine of chicken noodle soup” which I would say was fairly accurate. Whenever I find an octopus, I quickly switch my @krakensports WSRU 3500 that I use as a focus light into the “Red” mode to avoid making it flee, this one hung out with me for over 10 minutes.

Sea Otter Awareness Week, Day 1: Today is a sea otter fact twofer! Check your quiz questions! By the end of the maritime fur trade with the North Pacific Fur Seal (and sea otter) Treaty of 1911, only an estimated 2000 sea otters remained worldwide. Today, sea otters are recovering at varying rates throughout their historic range, including sightings in Japan and Baja California. Look at that big gap between Southern and Northern subspecies! That section of the US west coast has been absent a thriving population of a keystone predator for over a century. #seaotterawarenessweek
