There is supposed to be a species resident in the Menai but I have never seen one. They are related to pipefish which have been in plague proportions last year round here.

Hi Ho,,,,,, To all, i also thought they were from the med myself?
Don't quote me, but I think there are a number of species and they are predominantly found in warmer areas, but we do seem to have a some smallish resident populations around the coast.

Apparently we have several resident species but some more exotic ones are turning up in our waters more recently.
I found that out at the National Sealife Centre in Birmingham last month while on a long wait for a customer.
