Woohoo. El nino also will extend the swimming season in the ocean this year. Bring a lot more tuna north for fishing and make my plumeria & heliconia blossom.
Lots of good things about el nino too
What are these things, and why are they here?
The Pleuroncodes planipes, also known as pelagic red crabs or tuna crabs, are about 1 to 3 inches long, and typically live in Baja California. It’s not unprecedented for them to come up here, but other than a smaller number earlier this year on Balboa Island, it’s been decades since their last visit.
It’s too early to say what is causing this, but many other unusual creatures have turned up in Southern California over the past year, and climate scientists have pointed to warm water as a reason.
The unseasonable warm patch of ocean – extending from the Bering Sea to the waters off Southern California and showing up as a red splotch on temperature-indicating water maps – even has been given a nickname by the scientists: “The Blob.”
Can we eat them?
Not unless by “we” you’re including birds, sharks, yellowtail, tuna and blue whales. All those creatures love tuna crabs.
But they’re not great for human meals. They don’t have much meat in their shells..........
........Anthony Martinez, program manager for the county’s Environmental Health Department, said there are no human health concerns believed to be associated with the handling of dead tuna crabs.

I've seen some articles about colder water up here being the culprit the last few years. If the water is warmer one place it's colder another.
I don't know much about that however. Catch it, cook it, eat it is my only fishing experience. Hate the combat fishing though and I prefer trout fishing and walking streams when I was still able.
I suppose fish have been going through these changes since long before people set foot on land. Our experience is too short on this planet to even know the patterns.
