Thick swarms of juvenile squat lobsters or whale krill as it is sometime known, come down our coast and into the harbour over a small period in the summer. Most are eaten by seabirds and fishes or they wash up on beaches staining them red. Recently we have found some mature squat lobsters at the very base of the harbour living under some of the buildings held up by pylons.
Juveniles are usually seen up to 3 cm in length and adults 10cm
