Highlights from ROV Dive 8, looking at Mata Fitu—a location filled with chimneys covered in stalked barnacles that lent them a white, snow-dusted appearance. Scale worms, large snails, shrimp, and crabs were seen in abundance around the vents. Video courtesy of MARUM, University of Bremen and NOAA-Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory.
