Fish Flock to Heritage!

September 18, 2014

Earlier this week, our sailing guests were greeted by unexpected visitors when they arrived on board Heritage at her mooring in Newport Harbor.  A school of thousands of Menhadan fish were swimming around our 12 Meter yacht. Commonly known as Pogies, the Menhadan, are at the bottom of the fish food chain but are very important to the Atlantic Ocean’s Ecosystem.  Check out these great shots Captain Duncan got of the massive school of Pogies.

While sailing aboard Heritage in Newport, we have seen dolphins, a Mola Mola and now pogies.  Keep your eyes peeled when you are out on the water in Newport for more marine animals. What do you think we will see next?
