The Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute has been churning out a lot of eye popping videos lately. Hot on the heels of the unbelievable barreleye fish, this video footage from the Davidson Seamount includes many rarely seen deep water corals, sponges, anemones, fish and invertebrates. The Davidson Seamount is located about 75 miles off the California and it rises 1.5 miles off the ocean bottom to half a mile below the ocean surface. The Seamount contains a very high density of deep water marine life that is usually much more spread out in the nutrient poor environments of the ocean depths. The narrator states that some of the corals found there live for hundreds of years and grow to 9 feet tall . With a growth rate of half an inch per year, imagine trying to grow a deep water reef from frags, yikes.
