Driftlines are where all sorts of interesting
things accumulate along the edge of currents. In the open sea this might
include pumice stones from a volcano, Saragassum weed, a coconut, a
plastic thong sheltering a school of baby sergeant majors or a log supporting a
whole drifting community. Juveniles of various pelagic and reef fishes
huddle together with permanent members of the drift community. They gather
on and around anything offering a bit of shelter and pelagic predators cruise
the line looking for strays.
This section is the place for all sorts of interesting
short items. This might include text, still images or video clips, even a voice
clip, whatever turns up that is interesting. If you have something,
please get in touch.
