Deep Sea Predation and Digestion in the Galapagos
On their final dive in the Galapagos, the crew of E/V Nautilus encounters strange and beautiful creatures, tall slender fish, and a predation event involving the rare flamboyant squid worm.

The E/V Nautilus will spend several weeks exploring the Galapagos Rift region. The Galápagos Islands have been instrumental in the establishment of the biological theory of evolution, gaining insights to our knowledge of the chemistry of the Earth’s interior, and understanding the plate tectonic evolution of the eastern Pacific seafloor. In 1835 Charles Darwin visited the islands aboard the HMS Beagle and made fundamental biological and geological observations in the area.
