Re: circumnavigation of Read Island Yes I believe it is a Needle Fish aswell (mind you I'm not an icthiologist, or whatever a fish person is called) Did you know, that Needle Fish, along with a few other species of 'Feed' fish, their habitats/lay-eggs/etc in the inter-tidal zone. The decimation of many stocks of 'Feed' fish is due in part to habitat destruction. Habitat destruction can come in many forms, chemical pollution, over-use, or by shoreline hardening. The rock walls often constructed along shorelines to protect human 'Property' disrupt the natural cycle of shoreline egress/regress, altering the habitat needed for these species. SAY NO TO ROCK WALLS, keep our shorelines natural!
