    Like other crabs, this pagurid crab share a symbiosis relationship with the anemone on its back. The anemone replaces the crabs original shell and continues to grow with the crab, secreting a new shell for the crab throughout their shared lifetime.

    Got a really good one tonight. They're on a patch of coral reef in the Marianas.

    This is a nudibranch, or a sea-slug. Considered to be the jewel of the ocean for divers to see.

    Annnnd this is a guentherus katoi, first discovered in 2008 off of Japan during an ROV dive. The Okeanos crew just set a record by discovering this fish, related to a jellynose fish, outside of the Japan dive. It is only the 3rd time it's been recorded.

    Tomorrow is the last dive for the Okeanos crew.

    Fortunately, E/V Nautilus' expedition begins on May 12th

    Nautilus saw a couple of these creatures last year. This is a siphonophorae, a collection of individual organisms called zooids. Each organism has a special role to ensure the colonies survival.

    Often misunderstood fact: the notable Portuguese man o' war, which is often thought to be a jellyfish, is actually a collection of colonial organisms distinguished as a siphonophorae.

    This is another fish in the same genus as the previously recorded jellynose fish.

    It's the more common and typical fish of the family called jellynose eel that is closely related to the lizardfish and dragonfish seen in the previous pages of the thread.

    It is also distantly related to the rattails on page 2.

    Last dive until mid-June was tonight. It was a good one to end the 1st leg for Okeanos and its crew.

    The definite highlight of the dive was coming across this poor pagurid crab who is struggling with his life decisions

    The ROVs are exploring the San Juan seamount, a site of an extinct volcano. This seamount is of interest because of the range in biodiversity and geology, so we are sampling as we explore.3 hours 39 min ag

    Nautilus crew discover mysterious purple orb near ocean floor
    July 28, 2016 by Bob Yirka report
    [​IMG]
    (Phys.org)—The crew of the Exploration Vessel Nautilus has posted a YouTube video of their discovery of a mysterious purple orb-shaped creature living very near the bottom of the Pacific Ocean not far off the coast of Los Angeles. In addition to footage of the creature, the researchers can be heard making observations and engaging in a discussion about whether or not to capture it and bring it aboard for further study.


    The Nautilus is a ship operated by the Ocean Exploration Trust, which was set up by Robert Ballard with the goal of conducting both scientific research and capturing images of an undersea world that most people never get to see. Recently, the current crew of eaight has been investigating the tectonically active area off the coast of California, looking for organisms that likely live nowhere else. To conduct their studies, they operate two undersea remotely operated vehicles (ROVs)—Hercules and Argus—that they control from onboard the Nautilus. In addition to mobility, the ROVs have appendages that can be used to manipulate the nearby environment and implements, such as a suction hose, for pulling in specimens that are found.

    As can be seen in the video, the camera aboard the ROV shows images of various undersea creatures in their environment, when suddenly, a very small purple orb comes into view just above the ocean floor and under an overhang. The researchers clearly have no idea what it is and begin referring to it as a purple 'blob'. They zoom in and discover the blob is actually spherical and is spotted with whitish dots. They toss around some ideas regarding what it may be before deciding to pull it aboard for a closer look. As they maneuver into position, a nearby crab also apparently notices the orb and moves toward it, eventually knocking it around a bit as the crew continues to debate the nature of the creature. Eventually they agree to deploy the suction hose, but first use lasers to determine whether it will fit in their vacuum—their measurements suggest it is no bigger than six or seven centimeters, so they go ahead and suck it up.



    In an update, after getting a better look at the creature, the team reported that it unfolded into two lobes and suggested it might be a new species of nudibranch, a type of mollusk. More research is required to positively identify it as a new species.
