Yes, I was on the boat this night, along with Ned and Anna, pointing out where I had photographed the three striated frogfish (2 males chasing a female) spawn a month and a half earlier. Of course they saw these two in a totally different spot...! Plus, this happened in the dark of night, out of the main current flow, and I encountered the frogfish spawn there with excess of three hours of daylight left and in much more current flow? Lots of ?s to ponder, but we have a lot more information, especially on the striated frogfish's egg raft which is somewhat different from open water documentation of the longlure's egg raft. We stayed at the Brass Ring talking about the differences in the two striated spawning events into the wee hours of the am!
My photographs will be seen someday... :-0 A researcher quickly snapped up first rights to them so I can't post them for now. I understand that something of an "antennarid bible" is in the works, we will have to wait and see. It's exciting for those who love frogfish!
Congrats to Ned and Anna and thanks for linking the video inline Eric!
PS - Thanks must be given to Robyn Churchill (Snaphappy) for organizing this dive and inviting us all, along with Ned and Anna. Without her I don't think it would have happened. Thanks Robyn!

Firstly- FANTASTIC vdeo footage- absolutly incredible!!!!!!!!!!
Can you tell us any more info. about this proposed 'antennarid bible??'
I have searched Amazon and there is only a kid's book on frogfish that I have found so far.
A book on these fish would be a welcome addition to anyone's library.
I certainly want one!!
