Thanks for the summary Mark, the instance of diseases is very interesting.

It would be interesting to see if it occurred at certain times or places. Need more observations for that.

Hi Mark, could you please correct your records to read danimations/Neal Palmer as the recorders of the False kelpfish? Thanks. Jenni previously contributed in a similar way with an Anguilla australis sighting (the eel being tossed by a bottlenose dolphin) but wasn't involved with the False kelpfish episode.

@danimations Oops. My apologies. Records updated. I can't change the above image but the master file now records Neal Palmer's name.
