Underwater view, a male Garibaldi fish (Hypsypops rubicundus) has persuaded a female Garibaldi to lay her eggs on his nest, he stays near, and swims with her to fertilize. Good long shot. The nest is a patch of dark algae on a vertical rock face, on the reef. Then female leaves. There are eggs on this nest from as many females as the male has been able to attract. Then male stays to guard his nest and eggs from any other fish, like that persistent Seniorita fish (Oxyjulis californica). California Channel Islands. This reef is between the island and a kelp forest (Macrocystis pyrifera) with Bull kelp (Nereocystis luetkeana). Good natural sunlight. Pretty blue water. Beauty shot. Fish spawning. Healthy environment. North America West Coast. Pacific Ocean. Reproduction. This shot is another angle and continuation from other footage clips labeled BC180502_0362 through _0398 and BC190111_0001.
