Lots of egg laying going on right now. It was difficult to see it in the dirty green water but we made an effort. 50 to 51 temps on the reefs made pushing a shutter a little tough for some.

We gave a MPA map to a boatload of fishermen who insisted that the poachers at Long Point told them it was OK to fish inside the Pt. Vicente MPA. It's only been closed a few years now. Maybe they will get the message.
