Report Details

It was another beautiful day down on Mile 46! Once again we completed our CoastWatch survey in conjunction with our Marine Debris Monitoring project. Stand-up paddle boarding was the order of the day, as the three boarders were out riding waves from the time we arrived and were still doing so when we left. Not much to note on the wildlife. We did find a dead octopus/squid and some dead fish, but everything seemed to be in order. No physical changes or unusual finds. We will have to wait and see what next survey brings!

It is AMAZING the amount of sand that has been removed (naturally) by scouring.
