Barclay Sound Herring Spawn - Andi Wardop

Each year in spring, the herring gather to spawn.  This can happen in many areas within the Tofino and Ucluelet areas.  Thru the magic of Andi Wardrop, we were able to capture some of the images from a recent spawn in Barclay Sound while sailing with Brian Congdon of Subtidal Adventures.
