May Ecosystem Services Photo Contest Winner

Nyle Taylor:  Time and time again I witness nursery tubes protecting more than just the geoduck planted within. This is an image of Sculpin Eggs within a mesh tube on Harstine Island.

Sculpin eggs are another example of how many species take advantage of the temporary placement of these tubes to increase their rate of survival.
