Here’s an image from yesterday’s dive to 300 m at a Green Canyon site with SeaView’s SeaEye Falcon ROV in the Gulf of Mexico. The photo shows a diverse assemblage of deep suspension-feeders. Two different species of brittlestars rest on Callogorgia sp. sea fans surrounded by white Actinia sp anemones, yellow crinoids, and Anthomastus sp. soft corals. This was only one of the highlights. Check out NOAA’s Ocean Explorer website for my story on the monstrous black coral about 3 m across.
