Gray's Reef Underwater Residents

You can "meet" some of the animals that live at Gray's Reef National Marine Sanctuary, "face to face" by tuning into the Environmental News segment on the City of Savannah's cable access channel 16.

Environmental News airs each day at 45 minutes past odd-numbered hours. (Examples 11:45, 1:45, 3:45).

One of the first sanctuary residents featured was the black sea bass, a year round resident that is the most abundant fishery species at Gray's Reef.

Below, a black sea bass swims above live bottom colonized by attached sponges, corals and other invertebrates.

Be sure to check cable access frequently, as a different "resident" will be featured each week.
