Some days, either no eggs would hatch or just a few would, but occasionally we had almost 200 hatch in one day! In total we had 1,092 grunt sculpin babies hatch!! Since we were not able to successfully raise the baby grunt sculpins last year, we released them off our floating dock and hope they found shelter in the nearby eelgrass bed.
This graph shows how many grunt sculpin babies hatched from December to the end of April. You can see there is no pattern. You can compare this year's graph to last years here: Baby Grunt Sculpins 2009-2010. Be careful, the two graphs have a different scale; for the "Number of babies hatched", it goes up to 200, last year's graph only goes up to 100.
