Chris Dembinsky has been visiting the nearshore sites on a weekly basis and recording amazing evidence of ecological succession at these brand new reefs.
Juvenile Gray Triggerfish, i.e, < 8" in length were observed and near legal size Gray (Mangrove) Snapper were abundant.
Attached are images from the Flagler reef construction area.
The Triggerfish are perhaps grazing on the barnacle growth on the reef structures.
Thanks for the photos Chris.
