    Some clips from a dive at Madrona Point on July 19, 2015. Many dens had juvenile and young adult yelloweye rockfish in attendance.

    I didn't realize they could look as brown and white as the first couple of images. I have only seen them in aquariums as gray-white aged adults or quite red young.

    One was almost green in mottled areas of it's skin at Henderson Point, reflecting the ambient light flitered by the bloom in the water (yellowish green). Their color variations are always interesting.

    Lots around right now, loads of crab litter.
