Happy Fourth of July

For the Fourth of July, I thought we would highlight some relevantly named marine life, but it turned out to be a bit harder than expected. If you think of more, let us know.

There is, of course, the Hawaiian flagtail.

There are snapping shrimps.

Or we can just go with the stars ... and stripey!

Happy Fourth of July and don't forget to get out on or in the water tomorrow or this weekend and appreciate our coral reefs!
