The Poseidon is heading back towards Kiel and we’re busy cleaning, writing, and processing data. And, of course, sharing photos. Besides our scientific work, we’ve been enjoying the local wildlife – here are few of the highlights!
Occasionally a larger animal gets caught up in our sediment samples. We found a sea star (Astropecten irregularis), mud shrimp (Callianassa), some hagfish, and a sea mouse (Aphrodita aculeate).
