Micro Fish!

There is one benefit of all the weed in the Marina.

It is a perfect breeding ground for fish.  In fact the water is teeming with them.  From the tiny micro fish in these photographs to massive adults about 60cm long. (I know that isn’t how you usually measure fish but I am not going to catch one to weigh it!)

Sadly when the weed is cut in the next couple of weeks the habitat for these creatures will be badly disturbed however there are so many I don’t expect that it will have a long term effect on the numbers.  And the later eggs will hatch and soon replenish numbers.
