Red Shrimp Cluster Around a Gas Seep

Red Shrimp Cluster Around a Gas Seep

We've encountered a number of gas seeps deep in the crater of Kick 'em Jenny, the Caribbean's only active submarine volcano, but this one was special - the seep was crawling with a whole colony of red shrimp. These shrimp feed off of the chemosynthetic bacteria supported by the gas seeps.
