Accumulated life on the Boeing 737 as of July 2015

This page compliments of Andy Lamb of Cedar Beach Ocean Lodge.

Andy ben diviing ** PLEASE DESCRIBE THIS IMAGE **

** PLEASE DESCRIBE THIS IMAGE **Andy's 737 passenger list: 117 Species and counting !

The following list will likely change over time so keep an eye out for updates. (last update July 2015)

We have used Andy's book "Marine Life of the Pacific Northwest" as a reference and so are using the Lamb-Hanby Species ID letter/number code and the page reference is where to find it in "The book". If you need a copy of "The book" and would like to order one drop us an email and we'll make sure you get an autographed copy. I hope you find this as interesting as I do and I hope further you will come and join us in exploring the Salish Sea soon.

The fish species referenced at the bottom of the table are identified using the new 2010 edition of Coastal Fishes of the pacific northwest, by Andy Lamb and Phil Edgell
