Come Dive Along With Us at Catalina Island: Eggy Encounter

Moss Landing Marine Labs Diver and Graduate student Paul Tompkins shows excitement after viewing a wide expanse of squid eggs at Big Fisherman's Cover, Catalina Island.

Diving in the marine reserve at Big Fisherman’s Cove near USC Wrigley Institute, diver Paul Tompkins observes squid eggs which span his entire view.  This does not happen often according to the people working and living at the Marine Science Center.  The squid and eggs are rarely this shallow and may be caused by colder than normal temperatures brought by La Niña.
