Goliath Grouper spawning shoot!

Pierre and I just came back from a great shoot filming the Goliath Grouper spawning event in Florida for the 3rd season of Jonathan Bird's Blue World. We spent a couple days filming with David Doubilet, Jen Hayes and Wyland--heavy hitters in the underwater world. That was great fun. We were working with Jim Abernethy off his boat the Shear Water. We had tons of great fish action. Unfortunately, we are so busy finishing the second season stuff right now that I haven't had time to go through the footage and capture some underwater stills for the BLOG. I'll have to add them later. However, I have a couple topside shots of the gang in in action! (Special thanks to Annette Robertson for these pics!)

After a few days on the Shear Water, Pierre, David, Jen and I headed over to work with David Ochs and AquaSafari Adventures for an afternoon and dive a different wreck. We had fewer fish, but really clear water!

And in other news, if you haven't noticed yet, the first webisode of season 2 is now posted on the Blue World Website!! It's about my adventure learning to be an aquarist at the New England Aquarium. Check it out!
