Today I went diving for research after a long time.
The subject of the research is Nudibranch.
From next month, we will form a team to search for Nudibranch.
Most nudibranch is tiny, so I have to look for it carefully.
The Nudibranch that I could find is 2mm to 5mm.
Today, I was able to discover about 10 types of Nudibranch in total.
I’m so happy when I can find them.
Why don’t we look for it together?
This diving style is one of Japanese diving style.
When I search for Nudibranch, I could find out other creatures accidentally .
Today I found it.
It’s shrimp. They are good at hiding.
So, If you can meet this shrimp , you are very lucky to meet you.
Of course there are still schools of fish in other places.
A wide range of creatures, from schools of fish to small Nudibranchs, can be observed in the current sea of Kushimoto.
When you come to Japan or visit Wakayama Pref, Please come and visit us!!
Bye for now!!
There are the shell’s eggs that is called wine glass.

Only one day left in October.
The grand temperature is getting lower…but, other condition of the sea is good!!!
But, many people are still diving with wetsuit.
Recently, there are many shell’s eggs.
It’s called ” Wine Glass” in Japanese.
Many Japanese diver like it.
Don’t you think it resembles a wine glass?
And, we can met rare shrimp.
It’s tiny. So, it’s hard to find it because they are good at hiding.
The top shrimp is female and the bottom shrimp is male.
The number of file fish is increasing .
The fish is very cute I think.
Don’t you think the eye is very cute?
Then I will dive three times tomorrow.
I will have fun tomorrow too.
Thank you for reading the blog.
