Spying on the seafloor – the secret lives of fish at 100 meters


Recently researchers shared a rare glimpse of life on the ocean floor – posting video compiled from high resolution videos at a depth of 100 meters (or 328 feet) of aquatic life in an Australian marine sanctuary.

The researchers, who are participating in a collaborative project between Deakin University and Parks Victoria, recorded the sea floor videos from various sites in the Discovery Bay Marine National Park. The footage is part of a project to understand the connections between seafloor habitats and fish communities across Victoria’s marine national parks and sanctuaries.
