Merry Passage and I returned to Hawthorne Reef this morning, armed with wide angle lenses. We wanted to document the return of rockfish to the area after several years of their absence. The rest of the reef is still in decline. The rocks are no longer covered with corynactis anemones. Sponges and most other invertebrates are few and far between.
At a small, low-laying reef off Torrance Beach we found dozens of small sheepcrabs earlier this week. I'd never seen a single sheepcrab this size before, let alone so many. I figured they were here to molt. I found one empty molt near our anchor.

Nice lobster pictures!! Wave heights for the lobster opener on this Friday (29th) night at 6pm look dive-able for the lower part of California. Hoping everyone is safe with this year's new daylight 6pm starting time. The live TV news crews are going to be swarming the beaches with reporters doing interviews.
Be sure to check for DFW updates. As of now, the area between Abalone Cove and the Long Beach breakwater out to three miles will remain closed.
