The animals on the seafloor of the Celtic Sea

Yesterday we recovered some nice trawls from the sandy site. We also managed to get some images of the animals that live on the seafloor of the Celtic Sea, which is about eighty miles north by northwest of Land's End.

We've now finished most of the sediment sampling work at both our muddy and sandy sites. Tomorrow will likely be a busy day as we expect to pick up some lander, buoy and mooring equipment.
