What's unusual about these juvenile butterflyfish is that they were found by Alison Johnson and our REEF Cape Cod Field Survey Team this past September in Woods Hole. Many of you may not know that many tropical fish species' larvae are carried by the Gulf Stream eddies and whirls along inshore areas of New England, especially Rhode Island and southern Massachusetts and Cape Cod. The larvae then settle onto boulders, dock areas and survive through the early autumn, when the water temperature eventually, well, you know, extirpates the little buggers. Actually, many local collectors and dive clubs such as the New England Aquarium Dive Club get out to collect the fish for home and commerical aquariums. I once did a doubletake underwater off Cape Cod when I saw a school of lookdowns swimming with a school of Atlantic menhaden. All 3 pics were taken by REEF member Alison Johnson and are of a juv. Spotfin butterflyfish and a juv. Foureye as well as the ubiquitous temperate wrasse, Cunner.
