Spiny lumpsuckers!!

February 17, 2012

Yesterday, Danie (PC 37) collected the substrates she hung off the Pearson College docks in November for her Marine Science independent research project.  The substrates included glass, plastic, metal, fabric and wood. On two of the substrate types, she found a total of five spiny lumpsuckers!
