With regard to the identification of marine life on this site, please understand that I do not in any way represent myself as being an expert in this field. Research for identification purposes was done as thoroughly as possible and solely by me through the use of the internet and various publications, and it has been done strictly with the desire to provide a more thorough understanding and appreciation of life in the sea. A list of the references used by me for identification can be seen by clicking here.

All images are for sale. Interested parties should contact Patricia Jordan.
