Marine Megafauna Encounters in the Northeast Pacific Ocean

Although E/V Nautilus's work on Ocean Networks Canada’s NEPTUNE observatory focused on scientific instrumentation and experiments, the team also found many unique macrofauna making their homes across the Juan de Fuca plate. This life appeared not only on the seafloor, but at the surface and in the pelagic region - commonly referred to as "blue water" - as well. This album examines some of the more eye-catching animals that ROVs Hercules and Argus encountered during this cruise in the Northeast Pacific Ocean.
