We seem to be in the midst of another phytoplankton bloom, perhaps some species of snydera?
Keeping with the theme of amphipods in the SPC2 camera, below is an example (again what looks to be a molt) that is very well focused showing excellent detail.
Below is a collection of images from the SPC2 camera taken during the month of May 2015. These appear to be mostly molts from some kind of amphipod with a body length of 3-5 mm and are seen very rarely in the camera. Only 17 ROIs detected out of the over 20 million frames processed by the camera in 30 days.
We recently upgraded some of the hard drives and network card in the server that stores the over 40 million rois from the cameras and hosts this website. This is a standard build from System 76. Here are a few images of what is inside the server
Eric and Paul spent about 1 hour diving to clean the cameras and replace the intake filters on the port jet pumps today. There was tons of growth and a moderate swell to make for an entertaining dive. Below is a video taken after the cameras were cleaned
Paul and Eric swam out through some modest surf to clean the camera view ports yesterday.
A few videos of the system recorded during a weekly port cleaning. We see a lot of lobster and a lot of growth on the frame and cameras.
