Two Garibaldi swim among the kelp forests of California. Garibaldi are the official marine fish of California, and enjoy protected status.

Santa Cruz Island, California
Sea Facts:

Garibaldi prefer temperate waters. They range from Baja California to Monterey Bay, as well as the neighboring coastal islands.

Garibaldi make good parents. Adults maintain a home territory; the male clears a sheltered nest site within his territory, and the female then deposits eggs within it. She can lay up to 80,000 eggs.
