How did we get to September already? It is hard to believe the year is 3/4 of the way done! Here’s a few interesting stories we found on the web this past week. We also wish the best for our reefing friends and family on the East Coast to stay dry and safe!

New Fish From the Pacific Abyss
Scientists say they have discovered three new species of fish in one of the deepest places on Earth in the Atacama Trench — 7,500 meters below the surface in the Pacific Ocean, off the coast of Chile and Peru.
