Weekly Roundup May 31st - June 4th
This week brought with it a lot of laughs, some incredible sunsets, some new sites, a triggerfish attack and an unexpected trip overboard.
We completed EMP surveys on fish, invertebrates, substrate and coral diseases.
Took an upclose look at coral colonies and their morphological features
Went muck diving and came across some funky looking, nudis, mantis shrimp and pipefish.
And of course had a lot of fun above
and below the water
We saw some interesting coral health states as a lot of coral colonies and coralimorphs were affected by Acoela (notice the darker brown patches on the left and right photos) at Southwest Pinnacle and a sneaky SEB was present on an Acropora colony (middle)
This week also marked us saying goodbye to another intern. This time is was the turn of Pierre to head back home but we know we will be seeing him again soon. Have a safe trip Pierre!!
Until next time remember its
