Hello. My friend akaquaman told me about this site last week. It's truly a great site. I am not a marine biologist like akaquaman. I am a retired Cartographer. Just interested in it. I have been "collecting" with akaquaman for about 5 years. Great fun and I always learn something on every trip from akaquaman. We get some really low minus tides for "collecting". We "collected" some interesting fish last week but no octopus. He found the one he speaks of earlier in the week. Hope to go out with him in July. Take care.
