On the condo pilings just south of Constellation Park the Purple Stars appeared mainly healthy with only about 5% showing signs of sea star wasting disease. In addition the condo piling produced a green anemone (could be very large Aggregate Anemone ). Constellation provided a squid sighting...alive but likely soon to be dead (they die after mating).
HAPPY NEW YEAR ALL!
