We could see the spawning behavior today that’s why today is raining.

The behavior is so dynamic things!!
We want everyone to see this.

In this term, many kinds of underwater creatures lay an eggs.

Father Anemone fish protect his eggs until hatch out.

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.
