Comments : There is a lot of stuff in this shot. The Colonial Tunicates are the small, rounded, orange grape like animals. Also pictured is a Sharpnose Crab, Dead Mans Finger Sponge, and a Spiny-headed Tunicate. This is a great example of how much life there is living on the substrate in the cold Canadian waters.
