Surprisingly the EAC is pushing warm water south still and water temperatures in the aquatic reserve remain around 23 degrees. Warm enough for tropical fish but this year there haven’t been as prolific numbers as in previous years. Only 4 or 5 species of butterflyfish have appeared this year when normally there would be as many as 7 species. A good sized shoal of big-eye trevally are cruising around the bay at the moment and a few Moorish idols have appeared. The latter are typically late arrivals and indicators that winter is around the corner. Surgeon fish species are abundant, but I’m hoping the rough weather will bring some interesting visitors to the shores before the water temperature drops below 20 degrees again.
