Dive (b)Log

Friday Creature Feature: Hexagrammos decagrammus

Posted on October 24, 2014 at 1:50 PM

Simply known as Kelp Greenlings, these curious fish are common at most the dive sites we frequent around the island and are therefore commonly ignored. However, they have a lot of character and are one of my favourite species to interact with underwater. The females (as seen above) are browny-blue coloured and somewhat plain compared to their bright yellow/blue male counterpoints.
Most of the information I can find on them is about how to catch and cook them, but they do lead interesting lives you know. After using their flashy colours to attract a mate and create a small nest of eggs the males will ferociously protect their brood from larger predators. And they can live to be 25 years old, so they probably have a few stories to tell. 
I find them to be somewhat playful underwater. While diving up in Rockbay last weekend a female greenling helped me build an underwater art installation. The bay is full of old treasures--bottles, dishes, metal do-hickeys etc. I puttered around the bay collecting the most interesting of these objects and setting them up in an artful display. The fish (who you might think doesn't have any feelings but does in fact have an eye for great art) sat near by watching me add to the sculpture. She would swim away a bit, but kept coming back to assess the new additions as I added them. I knew she was critiquing my creative decisions and I could tell when she didn't agree with the placcement of an object because she wouldn't sit and stare at it for very long. She particularly enjoyed the teacups...
Next time you're diving, I highly recommend having a conversation with a kelp greenling, there's much more to them than meets the eye.

The extra speed allows you to quickly crank the slack out of the line when a sailfish grabs one of your baits and pops the line out of clip. These girls are your perfect fuckbuddies who would do anything to make you cum for them. Women still prefer the guy to arrange the date For those who actually need to find your Mr. Maybe only I prefer driven, strong and brilliant women. A partner that isn't quite sure what they want may indicate that they are not yet ready for marriage, or not easily satisfied. Publisher: barak bialke So you will have registered on to a web-based dating site Men will always comment on at least one of these things and fragrance is usually the outstanding. If he can say that about his ex, he can say the same about his potential partner. Whatever the ages of your household, it can be a worthwhile investment to coach yourself on coping with widespread situations that homeowners face

There are quite a number of women who categorize the entire male population into one. Coach Scott has met with and engaged in sexual relations with over fifty Latino (Hispanic) males (age range of 19 and 30 the fact remains, despite what feminists and modern society tries to tell us, younger women will always be attracted to older men because it??™s in our biology. You see, I knew better than anyone that I was a much better person with my wife than I could ever mange to be without her. Their health and level of activity can be equivalent to what was when they were thirty something. Such free online relationship services should present personal message, chat, etc. Most don't know how to go out on a date, take it easy and have fun. Look, though vital will not be the only key to a successful date The one I had, from what I found out later on cheated in everyone he was ever with. Those that are relaxed playing the field and dating many senior women , as I preach to you to do , do not suffer from this syndrome. On this modern century, more and more singles of America are joining the internet dating services to find their life companion. What Should I Discuss on a first Date?
