Striped perch, Embiotoca lateralis, Club-tipped anemone, Corynactus californica
The top of Eric's pinnacle is covered in Corynactus californica. This
area is in somewhat pristine shape despite the hoards of divers that come here.
I suspect that a misplaced fin here or there isn't much compared to the fury
winter storms inflict upon things in such shallow depths. Striped perch
(Embiotoca lateralis) such as this one can be found almost anywhere a
Monterey diver may venture.
