Another report from Little Harbour on the mysterious shrimp. The exact timing suggests it may well be related to a reproductive event timed to the tidal flow in/out of the pool. Will be interesting to continue to observe their behavior. Her observations….
“Well, I went back to the Dripping Stones today, exactly 4 weeks after I saw the 50 or so shrimp there – same tide, same moon, same time of day. And they were at it again! Not quite as numerous, but still way more than I see up there at any other time (for instance, 4 days ago at the same time of day I saw no shrimp at all). So here are a couple of pix – they are hanging out on the sides of the rock hole, just in one small area, just below the water surface. Weird.”
