Collection of Membranipora

Yesterday I walked along Nordnes shore from Sars until the fish market looking for good collection spots for Membranipora. In the residence buildings next to USF it is possible to collect, but a harpoon is needed to reach the kelp. Otherwise you need to go into the water.

The best spot is the Akvariet pier for Beffen line at Nykirken on Strandsiden. Easy to collect and full of colonies.

Collected a bunch that looked orangy (cut in situ) and brought to the lab. Their stomach is full (color), but I don’t see many eggs. Keeping them in the dark and will try to spawn them on Wednesday.
