Note: The Life in the Bay Slide Show is growing so large and diverse that it is no longer practical to view the Slide Show from beginning to end. We have eliminated that option. Varieties of anchovies, crabs, isopods, killifish, flounder, mackeral, gulls, mullet, scallops, and shrimp have each remained grouped together for convenience.

Netscape 6+ note:
(1) Windows and Linux users: If you installed Netscape 6+ by choosing the first installation option of the three offered, then Java was not installed and you won't be able to view the Slide Show images. Click on the "Get Plugin" link that will appear instead of the expected image when you try any of the Slide Show pages. Allow the automatic installation of Java functionality. (The second Netscape install option- Full Install- includes Java support. The third install option- Custom Install- offers Java support on the second page of choices).
(2) Mac users: You will not be able to view the Slide Show using Netscape 6+ unless you choose the "Full Install" option (Java included automatically). It appears that Netscape does not yet offer the Java plugin for the Mac.
