During a dive, the Johnson Sea-Link submersible encountered a "wall" of anemones. Anemones are soft-bodied organisms that attach themselves to a substrate. In order to feed, anemones use their "arms", which encircle their mouth to direct food toward it. They are related to the jellyfish. Image courtesy of Islands in the Stream 2001, NOAA/OER.
