FIRST FOOTAGE OF THE SEABED FROM GULF OF CADIZ.

Between 400 and 1200 m depth, in total darkness, we find unique ecosystems ever filmed. Scientists knew the existence of these ecosystems and their associated species due to coring sediment and fauna, but never been able to watch them directly on its environment.

Off the coast of Cadiz and Huelva, methane emissions are the engine of a unique ecosystem, consisting of a large number of species that directly or indirectly benefit from these emissions. During the last campaign of the group of Marine Geosciences (GEMAR) belonging to the Spanish Institute of Oceanography (IEO), under the LIFE + INDEMARES project, were filmed for the first time different types of habitats and species of these ecosystems. Some species may be new to science or never before mentioned in this part of the Atlantic.

Now scientists work overtime, analyzing images and the collected samples, hoping that their findings would make the change necessary to safeguard these deep ecosystems of the Gulf of Cadiz

  • GIF Description: Rabbit fish (Chimaera monstrosa)  A shy Long-nosed skate (Dipturus oxyrinchus) Sponge (Asconema setubalense) with a lot of euphasid (Euphausiacea) aka Krill and the cute blackmouth catshark (Galeus melastomus)

if you have passaged across the Bay of Biscay the there will be an extra layer of appreciation for this footage. Never been so sick in all my life. Anyways. Great footage :)

Cuttlefish are awesome but, as much as we’d like to have a little cuttlefish friend, it’s probably not a good idea to try to keep one as a pet. Thankfully we just discovered this shiny alternative that could happily live in our pockets.

Designed by Bathsheba Sculpture, this beautiful cuttlefish is made of solid steel and functions as a bottle opener. They’re also available in bronze and plastic (but without the bottle opener functionality). Click here to order.
