Surf Diatom Blooms


IMGP6486 The cold weather often bring extensive surf diatom blooms to the waves along Venus Bay. The strong winds have been whipping up plenty of foam to help the blooms spread. The surf diatom and a very large number of small crustaceans washed up overnight are likely to make great food source for the grazing shellfish under the sand. That is if there are enough pipis left!
