Do you notice that while a lot of GW's are being seen, there has been no noticable increase of sightings of blue sharks. It used to be that you would see a blue shark about an average of every 2 minutes while cruising. I guess that their food source is not recovering the way the seal and sea lion population is coming back.
Ya know, ultimately these plankton blooms become food. Basically, these plankton blooms are created by cold nutrient rich waters upwelling from the deep. At least in Monterey Bay, the upwelling is attributed to offshore winds. And the offshore winds are ultimately attributed to God having fun by blowing on sailboats for amusement. Actually, I wonder if there have been offshore winds in Monterey or the rest of California for that matter.
Enjoy the diving, seahunt
