“Many marine species can’t be photographed underwater for a variety of different reasons. Some animals are too small, some spend their life burrowed in the seafloor, and some live in the dark depths where nobody can dive. At our station, we collect specimens using different methods and as a result are able to make photos and then show a wide range of animals, which we haven’t previously seen in their natural environment. You can see some of them here in this project, and also it contains photos of some more common, yet very beautiful White Sea inhabitants.” by Alexander Semenov
