This Saturday, Inwater Research Group members Blair and Dawn Witherington accompanied 20 energetic students and watchful parents to pull seine nets through the Indian River Lagoon near Sebastian Inlet. The students had a chance to see and learn about a variety of lagoon inhabitants such as pipefish, mojarras, tonguefish, gobies, bay whiffs, mullet, jacks, croakers, spider crabs, blue crabs, mud crabs, sea squirts, tunicates, and shrimp. The kids took part in the netting, handled curious critters caught, and asked numerous probing questions about the lagoon and its inhabitants. Although the lagoon seagrass habitat that normally holds a diverse assemblage of creatures had largely disappeared from the area the group netted, there were signs that some seagrass was starting to return. A good time was had by all, and there was much rejoicing.
