Under Our Harbour

When we go kayaking in the Inner Harbour, (and you can see some of our posts here) the water's not like in the parks or ocean spaces we usually paddle. The harbour seems pretty dirty. I always wonder how many living things there are in the water. It's always nice to see a school of little fish go past our kayaks or the dock at Fisherman's Wharf. We usually see a seal or river otter, and sometimes a raccoon along the shore.
Now a local magazine, Hakai Magazine: Coastal Science and Societies, has taken a tour underwater and filmed a diver finding a surprising amount of sea life. It's only a few minutes long, and well worth viewing to answer the question of what could be swimming under my kayak in the harbour.
