Water Column

Main image

What’s here?

This section provides images and background on the groups of organisms that call the water column their home along the Seward lin and for the subarctic Pacific Ocean in general. It is intended to be primarily visual, and provide brief detail, natural history, and known distribution of species.

The section of the site is currently being populated and is modelled after a similar site for the Arctic Ocean. It will grow over time as more species are addded. Higher resolution versions of most images are available upon request.
