Congratulations Scott Smith!
Scott Smith: As it turns out, humans aren’t the only ones who enjoy feasting on Pacific Oysters. This octopus crawled into our oyster tub in Mud Bay on Eld Inlet. We released him back into the bay, but we found him the very next day in the same tub feasting away again. Smart guy! He knows good food when he finds it.
Congratulations Richard Turner!
Richard Turner: Native Spiny Scallops growing in homemade pearl net provides safe spot for native Green Sea Urchin to grow. The urchins graze on the algae growing on the scallops and pearl net. Scallops are natural filters of phytoplankton. Zooplankton help keep water clean of algae blooms.
Congratulations Audrey Lamb
Audrey Lamb: “Mussel farms provide three-dimensional habitat for other critters. In this photo, caprellids, or “skeleton shrimp” look like seaweed, but they are actually crustaceans that live on mussels. Caprellids cling to mussels suspended on ropes and ambush prey when it floats by. They are a food source for surf perch, shiner perch, jellyfish, and nudibranchs.”
