Some more life from the seabed...

What we lack in snow we have made up for with a series of exciting images of marine life from the seabed. Today we have moved across a variety of habitat types which has given us the opportunity to see a range of critters, from crabs to fish. We also discovered on the seabed a series of structures made by leaking gases, which provide shelter for many animals.
