Grunion have a unique spawning cycle.
Along the southern California coast, they leave the water at night to spawn on sand beaches.
During spring and summer months they follow a very precise schedule.
Grunion only run for a maximum of four nights, beginning on the night of a full or new moon and only at or immediately after a high tide.
Range: Central to Southern California extending into Baja California Mexico
