Color photograph. "We transplanted 2000 eggs and 1103 hatched. They come out early in the morning. They were laid out to go to sea. The babies hatch out about a week before they come the surface. They gain strength by digging their way to the surface and making their way to sea. They go just straight as they can to the sea, they stop to rest then go on their way."
