Several types of fish occupy the area around the Seattle seawall. Early in the spring, juvenile pink and chum salmon are seen in shallow water right up against the wall. Later in the spring, juvenile Chinook and coho salmon inhabit waters close to the seawall, and other fish begin to arrive. By early summer, the fish assemblages were made up of mostly sea perches. Forage fish such as herring and smelts also frequent the waters around the seawall.
A number of species of larger fish and invertebrates were observed by the SCUBA divers and ROVs. For a short film summarizing these organisms, use the following link:
