The variability of salinity levels in Florida Bay is important to the food chain. What does this have to do with glass minnows? Well, everything. He examined the relationship between mesozooplankton, salinity and bay anchovies. The ecological implications center on the the relationship between salinity, mesozooplankton and bay anchovies. Future changes in salinity could have significant effects.
Invasive Orange Cup Coral Silently Grows off the Keys
Series: Marine Life. Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 2,850. Language: English. Published: May 20, 2017. Categories: Nonfiction » Sports & outdoor recreation » Scuba & Snorkeling, Nonfiction » Children's Books » Animals / Marine Life
Orange cup coral is an invasive species. So far it has specialized on artificial reefs, dock pilings and oil rigs. On vertical surfaces, water movement, distance above the sea floor and less sedimentation than horizontal surfaces favor orange cup coral growth. Since most of our local reef structure does not have significant vertical wall structure, artificial reefs will be prime targets.
The Brass Section of the Reef

Trumpet fish are part of the Syngnathiformes family. Don’t fret, I can’t pronounce it either. It’s actually quite a large group. Cousins include seahorses, pipefish, sea dragons, shrimpfish, and sea moths. Bony exteriors and small tube-like mouths are characteristics of syngnathids. Like seahorses, trumpetfish males carry the eggs. The scientific name actually translates as “flute mouth”.
File this Fish with the Shy Group
Series: Marine Life. Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 2,580. Language: English. Published: May 6, 2017. Categories: Nonfiction » Sports & outdoor recreation » Scuba & Snorkeling, Nonfiction » Children's Books » Animals / Marine Life
Filefish have a protruding mouth with some very sharp teeth, similar to a triggerfish. They have narrow, compressed bodies with rough spiny scales and a front dorsal fin that can be raised or lowered. When the fin is raised, it resembles a file, which some reference sources say is the inspiration for the name. Filefish are another group of highly entertaining critters on the reef.
Look for the Fish in a Box
Series: Marine Life. Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 2,570. Language: English. Published: April 29, 2017. Categories: Nonfiction » Sports & outdoor recreation » Scuba & Snorkeling, Nonfiction » Children's Books » Animals / Marine Life
When I want a chuckle, I look for a fish in a box. Not a cardboard box of fish like you get in a bait shop, but a body box that fits perfectly and is color matched to its occupant. I’m referring to a group of animals called boxfish. They look like little robots scooting around the reef in search of a new power source. The Energizer bunny with fins and armor - and in some cases, horns.
Schooling Activity is Alive and Well on the South End of Molasses
Series: Marine Life. Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 2,710. Language: English. Published: April 22, 2017. Categories: Nonfiction » Sports & outdoor recreation » Scuba & Snorkeling, Nonfiction » Children's Books » Animals / Marine Life
Many reasons are given for schooling activity. Schooling occurs in up to eighty percent of species at some point in their life. Protection from predators, breeding and searching for food are top reasons cited for schooling behavior. There is also an advantage in riding the vortices created by the swimming motion of the fishes themselves - like a race car drafting behind the car in front of him.
Butterflyfish: Graceful Reef Gliders
Series: Marine Life. Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 2,530. Language: English. Published: April 15, 2017. Categories: Nonfiction » Sports & outdoor recreation » Scuba & Snorkeling, Nonfiction » Children's Books » Animals / Marine Life
There’s one thing I can guarantee I’ll see on every dive. Some sort of butterflyfish will be wherever I’m going. The REEF fish identification book has six species listed in the Caribbean. I have five of them in my image inventory, and most likely will never see the other one. In the Pacific there are well over 100 species.
The Great Hamlet Debate
Series: Marine Life. Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 2,680. Language: English. Published: April 9, 2017. Categories: Nonfiction » Sports & outdoor recreation » Scuba & Snorkeling, Nonfiction » Children's Books » Animals / Marine Life
There has been a debate on the number of hamlet species. The original classification was for one species, and color variations didn’t matter. Research is now shedding light on color differences. For example, the indigo hamlet is different in two ways. Another interesting study shows areas of concentration by color pattern, with blue hamlets being the dominant species in the Florida Keys.
Small Wonders on Reefs and Wrecks

If you are new to underwater photography, I applaud your entry into the submerged imaging realm. It’s your efforts that help spread the wonder and splendor of marine life found on reefs and wrecks. Your time, stories and photos are important. More than likely you will get better results shooting macro photography. Set yourself up for success by practicing and mastering macro photography first.
Wherever You Go, There's No Place Like Home

Coming home to the Florida Keys is an exotic destination in itself. When I got home from the Philippines, it was like coming home to a vacation that was interrupted by another vacation. On our trip we did not come close to seeing a vast array of fish we see routinely on Snapper Ledge or the south end of Molasses Reef. There are not many places in America that hold that distinction.
Photo Tour of the Philippines

The mandarin fish mating dance, a pregnant mantis shrimp, a blue ribbon eel and sea snakes are the most memorable to me. Lots of pipefish, sea horses and nudibranchs live in the seagrass, which made the hang time quite enjoyable. We also dove Apo Island two of the days we were there, then spent a week on the Atlantis Azores liveaboard at Tubbataha Reef in the Sulu Sea.
Goliath Grouper... Gentle Giants of the Reef
Series: Marine Life. Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 2,700. Language: English. Published: March 11, 2017. Categories: Nonfiction » Sports & outdoor recreation » Scuba & Snorkeling, Nonfiction » Children's Books » Animals / Marine Life
Itʼs common knowledge that Goliath groupers were nearly wiped out by overfishing up through the 1980s. Even though Goliath groupers have staged a comeback - estimates are about 35 percent compared to earlier populations - the benchmark figures are inaccurate. The stock is nowhere near historical levels, based on research. Another comment I saw berated Goliath groupers for decimating other fish pop
Angels on the Reef
Series: Marine Life. Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 2,630. Language: English. Published: March 4, 2017. Categories: Nonfiction » Sports & outdoor recreation » Scuba & Snorkeling, Nonfiction » Children's Books » Animals / Marine Life
Angelfish are the most colorful and beautiful animals on the reef, in my opinion. Some are very shy, like Rock Beauties. Others have varying degrees of aloofness, depending on the conditions and circumstances. The best spots for angels I’ve seen are the deeper parts of Molasses and French reefs, since that is also the place we find the highest population and variety of sponges.

There are a few places in the outer edges of the Florida Keys reef tract that are a whole different world. Deep French, Deep Elbow and Deep Molasses are quite different than the shallower namesakes. The contours begin around 50 feet, and usually bottom out in the 80 to 90 foot range. Nitrox is the preferred gas on these dives.
