Johnny Shockley captures the power of oysters on water quality. Oysters are filter feeders, consuming phytoplankton and improving water quality while they filter their food from the water.

Congratulations to Duane Fagergren for submitting a video that shows how anchovy & shellfish co-exist. 

Click to view video:

This fall, Totten Inlet is loaded with anchovies in two size classes, 2″ and 3.5″. These fish appear to follow a natural abundance cycle. We know forage fish, like anchovies, nourish diverse marine life: fish (especially searun cutthroat), birds and mammals. These predator groups are feeding voraciously on the small, but abundant anchovy prey.
