deep-sea organisms feed on larvaceans

"Sinkers" provide missing piece in deep-sea puzzle

” MOSS LANDING - One of the biggest questions in modern oceanography is how animals in the deep sea get enough to eat. Marine biologists at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) recently published a paper that helps answer this question, at least for animals that live on the deep seafloor off the coast of Central California. After analyzing hundreds of hours of deep-sea video, Bruce Robison and his colleagues found that "sinkers"—the cast-off mucus nets of small midwater animals called larvaceans—are a significant source of food for deep-sea organisms.

Watching the Western Flyer exit the harbor in heavy weather is an amazing site.
