Pokai Bay, Oahu April 1968
164 thumbnail picture
A typical invertebrate grouping found on the interior roof of the pipes consisting primarily of bryozoa, tunicates and sponges over the top of oyster shells. Oysters could not survive long once the other fouling organisms covered them over. You can see the tan colonies of erect bryozoa, Reteporellina sp. These colonies disappeared after strong storm surges.
