May 29, 2024

Ground Temperature: 17~25℃
Water Temperature: 17~21℃
Wind Direction:Southwest(3~5m/s)
Swell: 1.5~2.0m

It was heavy rain yesterday.
It makes the visibility down.

The visibility is 5~8m today, but there are still many fishes.
Especially , I was surprised that the water temperature was changing completely today.

The lowest water temperature is 17 degree, unless around the surface water temperature is 21 degree.
What’s happened ?!?!

Many fishes was also surprised I guess.
Some fishes were laying an eggs but another one don’t move at all at the bottom.

In this season, many fish originally lay an eggs and protect their eggs.
But, the number of fish that lay or protect eggs in this year.

On the other hands, we can see various of sea slug now.
Now water temperature makes us to see easily as usual .

I could find rare sea slug today.
4-5 years ago, we often can see this sea slug, but now we sometimes can see it.

At second dive, we meet a school of Greater Amberjack.
There are so many fishes in Kushimoto area now!!

The ground temperature is getting warm.
So, the diving season will be coming soon!!!

See you then(^^)/
