Description In July, the recent trends of warm, dry conditions lessened; however, river flows remain low.

Extensive macroalgae drifted through South and Central Sound and washed up on beaches. Macroalgae growth is fueled by excessive nutrients and sunshine. When it washes onto the beach, it is called beach wrack, and it can turn into a health risk to beachgoers because of the bacteria it harbors.

From our aerial photography, we saw that southern Hood Canal looks tropical because of a bloom of coccolithophores coloring the water turquoise. Schools of fish congregate in South Sound and southern Hood Canal. Jellyfish are abundant in Quartermaster Harbor.
