    Video of the Rosalie off Norfolk

    Here's a one shot tour of the Rosalie wreck where we see a lot of interesting wildlife - so I put it here rather than in some other section.

    Nice. Good vis - there were no pout though? I would have expected pout and not the pollack. Years and years and years ago when I fished that coast you got a small run of pollack (or possibly coalfish) in high summer but always very small throw-back fish, maybe 4-5cm. Lots of pout though.

    Great to see a bit of the UK I haven't dived. Thanks to you both.

    It is packed with Bib (pout) and poor cod, but they tend to hang round under the superstructure and I think this was a high up circuit. The pollack are new for this year and unfortunately being targeted by spear 'fishermen' - the little shoal is down from 15 to 5 now. There's also a big shoal of red mullet which is also shrinking.

    Sadly there is a determination by all and sundry to kill everything that swims. Red mullet are lovely to see and to eat. I was surprised how many of them there were when we dived from Shoreham. You think of them as a Mediterranean fish. There is a clay reef just offshore and it is a fantastic dive for wildlife. Lots of crab but also lots of sea stars and small fish, wrasse and the like.
