Life Sucks if You are an Anchovy in Monterey…

Despite the major die off of anchovies in the marina here yesterday, there are still large number of them swimming around the marina.  There are still lots and lots of things eating them. The birds are busy eating dead stinky anchovies and converting them to stinky bird poop.  The humpback whale is back again this morning eating thousands of them at a time.  The mackerel are doing their part to reduce the numbers of anchovies, with help from the seals and sealions, and a large number of terns.
