Photos taken Mar 31, 2009 show blue patches of herring spawn in Craig Bay (approx 20 nautical miles SE of Hornby)





(above rhodo only flowers around end of March)

(Note:  Suggested by boonibarb that spawnings and dates in Hornby general area be added here)

March 27, 2014 - Large spawn in Craig Bay documented HERE  I have never seen as many sea lions in this shallow bay!
