Mitrocoma back in Monterey
Description and Comments
Blue water and Mitrocoma were all around, from the aquarium to Pt. Pinos. Found a few Leuckartiara (6-10), tons of sea butterflies 100+ as well as long chain siphonophores 100+. Found a single Aequorea specimen, one very large Chrysaora colorata and plenty of C. fuscescens still in the bay as well (100+). Phacellophora was also present in good numbers (11 to 99). Small Pleurobrachia were found in the plankton tows.
