|Polyps of Paramuricea with attached anemones. Using high-tech robotic cameras, a |
team of scientists is getting a rare first glimpse of marine life in the North
Atlantic that could shed light on the ocean's ecosystem and climate to as far back
as 1,000 years. The team, from three Canadian universities and the Spanish Institute
of Oceanography, is in the midst of a 20-day expedition to study 11 areas under the
protection of the North Atlantic Fisheries Organization.
