Not many of us are so lucky to see our specimens in their natural environment - especially if they inhabit the deep sea. But with projects such as MAREANO, the National Norwegian habitat mapping programme, more and more footage is made available on the net.

Below is a link to a video clip taken in the North Atlantic in June 2008 as part of a video transect. The second clip from above shows a dancing Sabellid. The picture was taken at ca 1400 m depth on Mareano Station R 234.

Station: R 234
Date: 14.06.2008
Lat: 69° 22.62'
Lon: 14° 50.17'
Depth: ca. 1400 m
Temp: -0.78 C
