Surveying Squirts in the UK

The Seasearch East team organised a week of diving around the East coast of England specifically to survey sea squirts and take samples and pictures for the forthcoming Seasearch Squirts and Sponges of the UK guide. There was a great opportunity for some very unusual diving, such as in the Blackwater Estuary, off the lighthouse at Orfordness and in Lowestoft marina.
