We have also managed to solve the mystery of the missing starfish. This all began when we noticed 'starfish-shaped' imprints in the muddy sand on the seabed, but there were no starfish to be seen anywhere and no trails leading away from the imprints. We later realised that turbulence from the camera sledge being pulled along the seabed was sometimes lifting the starfish up and washing them away. The image below shows a starfish imprint, and the starfish itself.
