Just a brief glimpse of one of the first tropicals of the season, right on schedule.  We ran into this gray triggerfish, Balistes capriscus, under a dock in Shinnecock Bay yesterday. I’m hoping that the mild winter and warm spring will mean a good summer for collecting tropical strays on Long Island this year. For more on this topic, check out Long Island Gold Rush in last month’s Coral magazine.
