A colony of about 500 Lesser Pipefish has been found in the sea at Blackpool. These tiny fish are very sensitive to water changes & are usually found in areas with a wide variety of seaweed & kelp so it is extremely unusual to find a colony living around the iron legs of Central Pier! Found during one of the monthly beach clean-ups organised by the Sealife Centre, some of the rare fish have now gone on display in the promenade attraction as they had become stranded in a rapidly vanishing pool at low tide.
