The biggest fish we caught as a group was a Striped Bass.
These small shells attached themselves to rocks or to other shells and in order to be removed they have to be slid off with pressure. I actually ate three of these oyster tasting shells, and they were delicious!
Finally, Bruce pointed out a specific shell to us that seemed to be of interest to him. This shell was white with dark stripes going around the shell. At first we thought it was just another shell that hermit crabs used, however, the shells seemed to have specific holes/spaces that were different from other shells we had found.also, these shells were on a metal plate like surface instead of in the water like the other shells we found.
I think these are called lipped banded snails, because we later found out that these shells actually belong to land snails and not to hermit crabs or water species.On our way back to the boat Romina found a snail that was actually using its shell. The stripes were beautiful and the shells came in different sizes and colors(mostly less than an inch in length).
Overall, this was my favorite day we have had so far because I got to learn so much about 1. Striped Bass 2. different species .
