LITTLE BAY – The team of 12 scientists working to collect data from more than 100 sites around the island are making fascinating discoveries as noted in the latest update and the images they are sharing via the Waitt Institute and Waitt Foundation pages.
“Much of the sites we have visited were sand and seagrass. We are also continuing to encounter an amazing level of sponge diversity, the likes of which none of us have ever seen.
“The team visited a very exceptional site (last Wednesday) off of the northeast coast. It was full of large barracuda, sharks, jacks, groupers, snappers, coral, and an amazing diversity of sponges (more so than anywhere else). This site seems well known by fishermen as there were numerous fish pots on it as well.
