Snowy in the subtropics
Above the surface today’s forecast was for clear skies and sunshine, but beneath the waves on the three different destroyers we dove on today it was snowy, that is, snowy grouper! These beautiful, large fish with white spots were gracefully swimming along the bottom near the shipwrecks today. We also saw large schools of yellowfin bass, the occasional black sea bass, cunner, urchins, sea stars (including a few sunstars, which have 10 arms), more dogfish (danger danger!!), various anemones, and a coral called Acanthogorgia.
