Happy International Mountain Day!
#DidYouKnow: Seamounts are underwater mountains although very few have been studied. This photograph of brooding deep-sea octopuses, was taken at the Davidson Seamount, off the coast of California! ⛰️🐙

Happy International Mountain Day!
#DidYouKnow: Seamounts are underwater mountains, with their peaks only reaching thousands of meters below the surface. There are an estimated 100,000 seamounts around the globe, although very few have been studied. ⛰️

Today is International Mountain Day – and some of the largest mountains in the world occur under the sea. Thanks to the steep slopes of these seamounts, nutrients are carried upwards from the depths of the ocean toward the sunlit surface, providing food for corals, fish, crustaceans, and more. One seamount is Davidson Seamount in #MontereyBay National Marine Sanctuary, which is 26 miles long, eight miles wide, and 7,480 feet tall! Davidson Seamount supports a lush, biodiverse community of species like the precious coral and basket stars pictured here.

The Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument protects vibrant ecosystems that serve as living laboratories for scientific exploration and discovery. These amazing photos from @oceanx @bloombergdotorg @woodshole_ocean show why we must #SavetheSeamounts! #MonumentsForAll #BlueParks 📷s: Ivan Agerton for OceanX

Looking like a seamounts kind of day! We're taking our newest boat, Atla, out on her first specialty trip to the #seamounts of #cayoscochinos before rough weather hits next week. Here's to lots of fishes and calm waters!

#DidYouKnow : Octopuses are cool! They are able to change the color of their skin to blend in. They also have eight arms, three hearts, and nine brains! 🐙🐙🐙

All systems go here at @fsumarinelab with #meiolab gearing up and sending sampling equipment to #Chile to board the #Japanese RV #MIRAI, with #JAMSTEC and University of Valparaiso, to investigate #biogeography and #genetic #connectivity of#benthic #communities from #southPacific #seamounts. @zombyninja will be boarding end of Jan on this EPIC (East Pacific International Campaign) and hopefully come back with a whole bunch of#precious #meiofauna samples! #MarineBiology can be very cool!

Around 400 kilometers off the island of #Tasmania, scientists recently discovered a chain of seamounts (underwater mountains) but also a lot of #whale activity—on one day alone they saw around 30 individual #humpbacks. #Seamounts are often busy with life (which equals food) because of the way they direct currents, but the @universityoftasmania scientists aboard also wondered if the #whales were using them as navigational signposts. Here's a baby #humpbackwhale in Tasmania "learning important skills for its journey ahead." 📷: @wildoceantasmania

"When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world.” ~ John Muir 🙏🌊 Aqua Yoga Play with me today 12:30pm-1:30pm at the Colorado Athletic Club Boulder @cacboulder 🌊🙌 #aquayogaplay #yogawithsandi #cacboulder #marinelife #saveouroceans #yoga #interdependence

Photo by @BrianSkerry | A young harbor seal peeks at me over a mound of surf grass at Cortes Banks, a range of underwater mountains located 100 miles off the coast of San Diego, CA. This location, well known for stormy weather and giant waves, is a hotspot of biodiversity with an abundance of marine life found here. Places like this are oases of life in the sea, where each animal plays a role. Yet such places could easily be destroyed by a single fishing trawl net being dragged through it or by undersea drilling, and few would ever know it existed.
Naturalist John Muir once said, ""When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world.” Throughout my career of exploring our planet and especially the oceans, I have found this to be true: Everything is connected and every creature matters.

The Mariana Trench is the deepest part of earths ocean. Also where the deepest volcanic eruption is happening at 4,500km below ocean surface. 🌊 🌋.

#оПерелетеПост
Мой #трансконтинентальный #трансантлантический #перелёт прошёл великолепно😌 Хоть я никогда и не боялась летать, но в этот раз было небольшое переживание, которое, впрочем, улетучилось когда #swissairlines угостила шоколадом😋😁
Из интересного:
- пролетели над местом где погиб #Титаник 🚢
- в океане тоже есть горы #seamounts
- ОЧЕНЬ вкусно кормили для эконом-класса 🍽
- #алкоголь платный🥂
- есть чем себя занять: интересная музыка, фильмы, игры, как для взрослых, так и для детей👨‍👩‍👧‍👦
- если ты не всегда понимаешь #английскийязык это ещё не значит, что ты из России🙃
- этот #текст написала в небольшой зоне #турбулентности (эффект от шоколада оставался😄)🌪

SHARK CLEANING STATIONS

Like cars lined up at a car wash, #sharks gather at #ocean cleaning stations that are mostly located at #seamounts. There, hungry and detail-driven cleaner wrasse #fish rid sharks of dead skin, external parasites and other undesirables.

Some of the most important #cleaningstations for sharks are seamounts of the Archipelago of Revillagigedo, where up to 3 different species of sharks Galapagos (Carcharhinus galapagensis), Silvertips (Carcharhinus albimarginatus) and Blacktips (Carcharhinus limbatus) go together to the #skarkspa.

Today/ Hoy ⬇️
Peter Klimley Conference:
“Designing Marine Reserves for Sharks in the Eastern Pacific”
12:30 PM
Auditorio Héctor Mayagoitia Domínguez
CICIMAR —
El Dr. Klimley recibirá un reconocimiento por sus 40 años de trayectoria en el Golfo de California.

➡️ Watch it on Facebook Live: https://m.facebook.com/Pelagioska/ ⬅️

📷: Fred Buyle @fredbuyle a bait ball in #Revillagigedo

Dr. Klimley has chosen to summarize much of the work completed by himself and other colleagues, including Drs. James Ketchum and Mauricio Hoyos, on creating marine reserves in the Eastern Pacific. He will talk about seamounts an islands in the Gulf of California, and about ‘biological hotstpots’ at seamounts and islands. He will end up presenting a summary figure rating the degree of mobility, i.e., insular, insular-pelagic, and pelagic of the sharks of the eastern Pacific. He will conclude with the acknowledgement of the importance of the recent creation of zones of protection around such features – arguing for considering creating such a zone around the El Bajo Espiritu Santo seamount off La Paz.
