Marine Invader Monitoring and Information Collaborative
August 21, 2015

We have been focusing on the float that is after the CTC boat float and the Stone wharf in that area.

Jeremy Miller and Erno Bonebaker arrived to check out the site and help with the monitoring.
We observed much less invasives than the previous year with spotty distributions of Sheath Tunicate, Golden Star Tunicate and Lacy Crust Bryozoan. There were rare occurences noticed of invasive skeleton shrimp
