A diversity of deep sea invertebrates, including Stylocordyla borealis, the five round tulip-shaped sponges in the top center and right center, is visible with a specimen of Tedania dirhaphis, the larger light sponge at lower center and right side of the image. This view of the sea floor habitat was made on August 1, 2007 by a manned deep submersible at a depth of approximately 1000 feet during undersea research of Pribilof Canyon in the Bering Sea.
