Many babies schooling around presumed parent in shaded, shallow (1/2 to 1 ft deep) backwater swamp. Based on a quick dot-count, I estimate that there were as many as 2000-3000 baby bowfins in the school.

ID with help from Milton Love and Jack Engle at University of California, Santa Barbara. Overall length about 3cm. Very shy. 5-6 individuals observed in crevices at around 50-60’ depth in the dive park at Catalina Island. Possibly a range extension for this species. This was the only image I was able to capture that was worthwhile.

While it wasn't the camo critter we were out there specifically to study, who could help but love the face of the Sargassumfish (Histrio histrio). Ok, granted I really dig all frogfish, they are remarkable creatures, but H. histrio is quite a marvel, and we found them in abundance, though all were quite small. This fellow is about 1.75 inches long at most (as that was the largest size we found on this trip!) They do get much larger, upwards of 8 inches.
