Weeks of dense phytoplankton near shore have made visibility challenging, but this weekend, zooplankton finally reappeared. Tiny larvaceans, as well as other squiggly larval things, are mopping up the microalgae. Pretty soon I may have to abandon bottom-dwelling Phil for the water column.
Yesterday, we left beautiful conditions on Golf Ball Reef for a second dive at Malaga cove. We were on a hunt for Felimare californiensis (formerly Hypselodoris californiensis). Until Mary Goldman found one at 35 feet off Malaga in January, this elegant nudi had all but disappeared from our mainland.
