Hashtags #seamounts for Instagram

Cool methane seeps, hydrothermal vents spewing blistering hot water full of minerals, corals and sponges that are thousands of years old, and an abundance of undiscovered wildlife. What makes the newest Hope Spot, the California Seamounts, unique also makes it vulnerable to exploitation.⠀

Take a submersible to these mind-blowing underwater mountains, volcanoes and ancient islands with @SavingOceans in Ocean Stories (link in bio👆🏻)! ⠀

Some weird and wonderful creatures threatened by bottom-trawling. ACTION LINK IN BIO: @greenpeacenz - we’re calling on the government to ban it. Powerful trawlers drag monstrous nets weighted with steel doors and rollers across the sea floor, killing or catching everything in their paths. Ancient coral forests are crushed and delicate habitats destroyed - possibly never to recover. Take action now in our BIO: @greenpeacenz

The Rodriguez Seamount, located approximately 42 miles off the coast of southern California, has a summit largely consisting of a large flat dome, making it a geological rarity. A flat-topped seamount like this, called a guyot, accounts for only 283 of the nearly 10,000 seamounts in the ocean. Like other seamounts, Rodriguez is home to an astonishing variety of marine life. Expeditions to the seamount have uncovered a plethora of organisms including sponges, brittle stars, anemones, sea urchins, crabs, 20 fish taxa, and 26 species of corals including massive bubblegum and bamboo colonies.⠀

New Ocean Story! 🌊📣
Thousands of feet below the surface of the ocean, the Gumdrop and Pioneer Seamounts off the coast of California support diverse and abundant life, including the upper water column prey that seabirds feed on. In one study of seamounts in the north Pacific Ocean, seabirds were found to be 2-40 times more abundant in the waters above seamounts as compared to other stretches of open ocean!

🎣 Blue marlin from a double header release at the seamounts 100 miles offshore the Pacific coast of Costa Rica. Full Video is up on YouTube!
🇨🇷 A cool fact about Costa Rican fishing is that they did not have a spanish word for "fish on". They said they know a fish is on by the giant thump you feel through the boat when these enormous marlin hit the bait.

New Video is up on YouTube! Link in Bio. Fishing the seamounts 100 miles offshore of the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. Tommy lands his 1st billfish, a 550 lb blue marlina and they get a double header blue marlin! They stay covered up all day with yellowfin tuna and end the day with a catch and cook tuna dinner. Check it out on YouTube! Tommy's 1st video filmed and edited by him all by himself! #puravida #lossuenos #inthebitemagazine #inthebite #inthebitekids #bluemarlin #costaricaseamounts #seamounts #costarica #marlinmag #marlinmagazine

So my #PhD student @zombyninja has these samples he took in the deep #Pacific mainly on #seamounts showing interesting #colourgradients. After checking his #coring log, we noticed it could be possibly due to presence of #metallic #nodules. The preservative he used is DESS, a saturated salt solution and therefore quite corrosive to metals (as we've noticed with some of our steel equipment in the lab). The current #hypothesis is that samples with nodules large and small show this rusty color because the iron in it has corroded... Will be fascinating to see how the #meiofauna #communities differ 'along the colour spectrum' of his samples. #curiousfinds #interestinglifeofaphd #deepsea #science

The Cortes and Tanner Banks are twin seamounts located 5 miles apart with the highest point located a mere 3-6 feet below the surface at any given time. These seamounts are notorious because of their nearness to the surface, their shipwrecks, & their overall biodiversity! #CaliforniaSeamounts

Hi @vcuarts its me Meredith Brindley @daydreameredith a #VCUartsAlumni from #VCUartsKineticImaging Right now I’m on the boat behind me, the #RVFalkor , in this picture somewhere in the #Pacific ocean as the artist in residence making art about #seamounts, #data and #oceanography. I’ve taken over KI’s instagram, so follow me through the day to see what my life is like as a #VCUarts alum at sea!!

‘Brittle stars,’ are called so because of their ability to quickly lose an arm to a predator – allowing them to survive and later regenerate the lost limb! ⭐

Second pick up on this 700mile trip, ATL airport for the #EPIC cruise samples, from #Pacific #seamounts and #Atacama trench... @zombyninja you're gonna have fun with these samples. A couple leaks but nothing major. 5:30hr drive back now... @fsumarinelab #meiofauna
