During a recent rock pooling trip we observed large numbers of ‘stranded’ fish underneath rocks at the lower shore intertidal zone. Individuals were of various sizes and appeared to be ‘stranded on a variety of substrates including gravel, rocks and seaweed. We immediately started a rescue mission and moved three individuals to nearby water-filled rock-pools. It was only after continually observing relatively unperturbed specimens that I realised that this species might actually be quite content and be adapted to time without water - one of my many Homer Simpson “Doh moments!
