Dive R1781 Highlights Primary Node PN1D

Loading the player...

This dive at Primary Node PN1D was in support of the cable ship the Dependable. The ROV ROPOS supported the installation of a 17 km extension cable extending to the Oregon Shelf Site. Huge ling cod appear to have made the node their "house", while snails (with yellow egg stalks), sea anenomes, and a variety of fish are also thriving on this "reef".
