Walsh Cove, Waddington Channel, West Redonda Island 8-2012. A boulder and rock face habitat. This is a most interesting sample of "interaction" between two sea cucumbers, sped up somewhat. It is unknown if this is attractive or agressive behavior, or just a chance encounter.
Teakerne Arm, West Redonda Island 8-2012. We are in a very rocky and semi-protected cove a short distance from a waterfall near Cassel Lake. The images are a little blurry but you can clearly see a number of juvenile copper rockfish (Sebastes caurinus) and blackeye gobies (Coryphopterus nicholsi), swimming quickly in this speeded up video.
Pendrell Sound, head or north end, East Redondo Is Canada 7-15-15. Here we are anchored in deeper water and stern tied to a rock on shore. The bottom is scattered rocky rubble and coarse sand, with a low cover of small red algae. You will see a large sea anemone and sea cucumber in the first half of the video. Blackeye gobies (Coryphopterus nicholsi) appear to be the most common fish.
Pendrell Cove, Pendrell Sound, East Redondo Is Canada 7-15-15. Taken at the rocky slope on the East Redondo side of the cove. There are scattered filamentous green and red algae, maybe a small sponge, and a group of pile perch (Rhacochilus vacca).
Pendrell Cove, Pendrell Sound, East Redondo Is Canada 7-23-18. Video from the bottom edge of the rocky slope on the East Redondo side of the cove. Blackeye gobies (Coryphopterus nicholsi) are common, and one posed for the picture.
Pendrell Cove, Pendrell Sound, East Redondo Is Canada 7-23-18. Video from near the top of the oyster covered rubble to near the bottom of the slope, Shiner perch (Cymatogaster aggregata) are common here, swimming through a thick cover of filamentous green algae or diatoms.
Pendrell Cove, Pendrell Sound, East Redondo Is Canada 8-1-19. Here we are in rocky rubble on the cove bottom. An unidentified flatfish and another unknown fish swim out of the field in the first 15 seconds, and blackeye gobies are the common fish in the rest of the video.
Laura Cove Prideaux Haven, 7-20-15. The bottom in the inner half of this busy anchorage was sandy with scattered small rocks and a light cover of brown kelp. Juvenile copper rockfish (Sebastes caurinus) are attracted to the camera.
Laura Cove Prideaux Haven 6-21-16. Similar location as the video above, with a large spotted ratfish (Hydrolagus colliei). There's a burrowing shrimp burrow in the center.
Melanie Cove, Prideaux Haven 7-18-16. A pretty murky view at about -21 ft (7 m), with a soft diatom-covered bottom. Small pile perch (Rhacochilus vacca) are foraging above the bottom.
Tenedos Bay, Canada 7-22-16. There is not much to see here, except in the closeups. Numerous juvenile sea cucumbers, no more than 1 inch (2 cm) in length can be seen as dark and wriggling worm-like features when the video is sped up.
