Our last survey here was on Oct 2014. Labrador shore has one of the best meadow of Sickle seagrass on the mainland and one of the few locations where the Tape seagrasses are not 'cropped'. The seagrasses are looking well.
Spoon seagrasses along about half of the shore at the mid-water mark.
Pore corals and Small goniopora corals. Also many small clumps of various sponges and seaweeds such as Green coin seaweed, Brown mermaid's fan seaweed, Halymenia red seaweed, Taugeh seaweed and Holey green seaweed.
Acropora coral, a tiny colony of Galaxy coral. I saw a few small colonies of Favid corals. Button zoanthids were abundant and I saw one large clump of Sea mat zoanthids.
Frilly sea anemones and one Haddon's carpet anemone with anemone shrimps. Here's a video clip of them.
reclamation,dredging and other coastal works for the new Pasir Panjang Container Terminal which includes underwater blasting. Hopefully, as the massive construction nearby comes to an end, the seagrasses and other marine life at Labrador can return. It is only through long-term monitoring that we can learn more about what is happening on this shore.
Seacil project have been removed! Hurray! We also did not come across any fish nets or traps today.
Thanks to Yuet Hsin and Pin Chong for permission to visit and joining us for the survey!
