Tropical fish

"The tiny state of Rhode Island boasts 40 miles (64 km) of coastline, with a combination of shore and boat dive sites, most from the Newport area. The underwater contour off Rhode Island includes cliffs and tunnels. During late summer the Gulf Stream brings juvenile tropical fishes to the area. They take refuge in warm, shallow coves and areas that provide protection from predators. In fall they perish as the water becomes too cool for their survival."

From Maine to the Florida Keys
