About the Feeds

Shortspine thornyheadTanner Crab

Strait of Georgia East 170m This live video feed is taken from the East Node in the Strait of Georgia. The camera is mounted on a specially designed platform with two trays under the camera view. The common animals you will see here are shortspine thornyheads (Sebastolobus alascanus), the red fish resting on the bottom, and tanner crabs (Chionoecetes bairdi), which have eight long, slender legs and frequently bury themselves in the mud. The tidal currents can get quite high in the Strait of Georgia and will affect the visibility. When the currents are low, the visibility is clear; when they are high, the visibility is poor due to suspended sediment in the water. Watch how the animals, especially the thornyheads, react to high currents.

The latest experiment was deployed on March 7, 2014. For more information about the latest deployment visit Wiring the Abyss 2014 and check the Active Research section at www.OceanNetworks.ca. For related photos browse Ocean Networks Canada Flickr galleries.
