Below left: Serrated Wrack (Fucus serratus) As seaweeds become covered by the tide they are supported by the water and spring back to life. The sunlight streams through the shallow waters allowing them to photosynthesise. Photo Vicki Howe (MNR)

Below: Male Cuckoo Wrasse (Labrus mixtus) Cuckoo Wrasse are protogynous hermaphrodites, meaning they are all born as females but can become males when a dominant male disappears. Photo Blaise Bullimore (MNR)
