My moon in the Gulf
One of my favorite fish - Moon Fish (Selene setapinnus)
Had a pretty good sleep tonight, still not able to sleep straight thru. I usually wake up around 1700 hrs, so I went ahead and jumped out of bed and had some clam chowder in the galley. Yummy.
It is now 0300 hrs and I can hear the crane warming up to bring in our next catch.
The other day we were non-stop working and someone said, "I hope this next catch is low". Then we all looked at each other and realized what was said. If we hope for a low catch that means less work, however, that also means a poor ecosystem. So we really should hope for large catches...... funny when you think about what you wish for sometimes when you are tired.
See ya later,
