Today I am in San Diego for my nephew’s wedding by the bay! As I walked down to the water before the ceremony I noticed that there are millions of what looks to be baby lobster (they may be some type of oceanic crab, but they look like lobster!) Some are left up on the rocks by high tide, but most are alive in the water.
Update: it looks now like these are Pelagic Red Crabs, aka tuna crab or squat lobster. They are found off of the western coast of Mexico, but in warmer years they will extend up the coast into California. Looks like we may get into an El Nino weather pattern here yet! Here is a related article in one of the local papers here… Red Crabs blanket Orange County Beaches
Anyways, these were a neat find, so I thought I’d share! Dan
