Follow live video feeds from NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer An anglerfish, of which we saw one, and of only nine species and 21 individuals we observed during our dive on Atlantis II (compared to 15 species and 65 individuals observed at the minor canyon east of Veatch). During remotely operated vehicle Deep Discoverer's transit today, we imaged a cup coral that had recently captured a small jellyfish for its next meal. Here you can see some of the diagnostic features of C. welshi, like the S-shaped radial canals and gonads running along the inside of the bell. The red dots in the background are 10 centimeters apart and are used for scaling. The view from the control room as Deep Discoverer collects high-resolution imagery of a deep-sea sponge.
