#67: What's Happening - Counting Grunts

It's that time of the year again - our annual census of the Giant Ocean Tank critters. Some species are harder to count than others, for example the smallmouth grunts. Check out this video of the school, and see if you can count them yourself. A smallmouth grunt has 5 or 6 yellow stripes on its elongated cylindrical body, and yellow fins.

Look for a future post to see our final count.
