Did Not observe sample was given to me 31/8/11 Loch A Chumhainn
I was inspecting an oyster farm (31/8/11) at low tide on the Loch A Chumhainn, west Mull where the operator had been observing an increase in sea squirts under the oyster trestles. I took some samples to hopefully identify them back at the Marine Scotland Marine Lab unfortunately the samples had dessicated somewhat. The site operator reports that he has not seen this type of seasquirt before. I have included some pictures, hopefully you may be able to ID the species from them.
Species were in abundance under the Trestles of the Oyster farm David Tomlinson
