White Sea Bass Pen Cleaning Dive

Ever gone diving in the San Diego Harbor?

How about diving around 21,000 juvenile white sea bass?

 

The White Sea Bass Pens Desperately need a cleaning meaning I need a

DM and Divers

(I can not have divers in the water unless I have DM)

 

This will be a 1 tank dive, after a quick brief from the wonderful DM, that has NOT yet volunteered their talented services, we will hop in the water and give the nets a scrub.  The best way to clean off the growth is rubbing the nets in between your gloved hands.  If you are not inclined to soil your gloves I will have cloth gardening gloves with a rubber overlay on the palm.

Plus we do have a hose that you will be able to rinse yourself and gear off before leaving the pier.

If my eternal gratitude is not enough... I will also bake something as a treat.  I personally recommend my tasty pumpkin spice bread with the addition of semi sweet chocolate chips, I also make a mean apple coffee cake, biscotti, and cookies.  Let me know which one I should make.

 

 

ADMIN STUFF YOU MUST READ:

The Virtual Donation Jar is always out (for the Meetup site costs and general fund). It's strictly voluntary, but is very much appreciated and needed:  Click here for the DONATION JAR

If you have not submitted a Liability Release for Power Scuba, please follow this link to the file, print, sign, and bring to the event along with your C-Card (scuba certification card). You need to do this at least once a year:  Liability Release and Assumption of Risk

You must also read this: Disclaimer and Clarification... AKA Terms of Service...AKA Terms and Conditions

Anyone with a medical condition possibly counter-indicitive to diving must have a doctors signature on a diving waiver form and submit signed form to Bill Powers (or an organizer) before they may attend any Power Scuba event. YOU MAY NOT ATTEND AN EVENT WITH AN UNDISCLOSED MEDICAL CONDITION. Doing so is grounds for expulsion from the group. Here is our medical statement: Medical Statement Therein you'll find a Doctor Waiver form as well.

Attending any scuba event Power Scuba facilitates constitutes attendee's affirmation they are medically fit to dive, certified to dive by a nationally-recognized agency, have the necessary skill & training level for the dive being offered, have read the Terms and Conditions, and have submitted a signed Liability Release to an organizer.

Important Note: It is not the organizer's role to lead your dive (or to wait for you after you come out of the water). He/she merely facilitates you getting to the pre-dive meeting location. The Organizer will not assign you a buddy nor will he/she be leading the dive as a "group dive". Visibility and liability do not allow for that. Nor will the Organizer tell you whether you are skilled enough to make any particular dive. That is for you (only) to decide. When you enter the water, you (and your buddy) are on your own. You must plan and execute your dive with your dive buddy only. Once members arrive at the meeting spot, the Organizer becomes simply another diver.

Power Scuba bears no responsibility or liability for a member's loss (gas, airfare, hotel fees, etc) in the event of a cancelled event.

Your participation constitutes your affirmation you agree to these above rules and disclaimers.... and that your buddy(s) (if applicable) has read and agrees to the same.

    I am so sorry. I broke my toe a few weeks ago and seems to have blown up a bit. I deeply apologise. I will keep up to date on your next adventures. Once again, I am so sorry.

    I just moved back from Florida and don't have my cold gear out from storage yet. Do you need any one to help/assist? When will you be done by?

      We will hopefully be done in the water by ten and yes I could use help topside and with snorkelers.

    This sounds kinda fascinating being swarmed around by a ton of fish! Has anyone done this dive before?

    • Janyl (Witherite) Gauthreaux

      I wont actually have divers in the pens with the fish, it would unduly stress them. In the past SDOF has had a snorkeler in each pen but which I will consider doing this time.

      Haha I guess that wouldn't be good, stressing out the fish.
