Fairy Basslet: These small, brightly colored fish can be found living on coral reefs, slopes, and walls in scattered groups. They are known to swim upside down, orienting their bellies to the ceilings of caves and ledges.

Horn Shark: Horn Sharks live on rocky reefs and kelp beds off the coast of southern California and Baja California, Mexico. They are active at night and tend to be reclusive during the day, hiding under recesses or inside caves.

Lumpfish: Lumpfish live in the chilly waters of the northern Atlantic Ocean, from Greenland to New Jersey. They have thick, stout bodies with modified pelvic fins that forming a suction cup, which they use to stay in place.

Pygmy Seahorse: Growing to only 2 cm in length, Pygmy Seahorses can be found clinging to sea fans. They are often pinkish in color with orange to red bumps and spots all over their body and encircling bands on their tails.

Saddled Butterflyfish:Also known as the Saddleback Butterflyfish in Hawaii, this species is found in coral-rich areas in lagoons and reefs throughout the Pacific Ocean. Like other butterflyfish species, they can often be seen in pairs.

All 5K participants will receive a limited edition race shirt, downloadable race bib, and a set of Fish Team stickers! Proceeds from the 5K support the REEF Oceans for All Fund, a pooled scholarship fund dedicated to supporting the core values of diversity, equity, and inclusion in marine conservation.
